Don't miss the annual Halloween event at the Colwood Fire Hall on Metchosin Road

Come out and join us for hot dogs, hot chocolate, treats, and fun! 

The event starts at 5:00 pm and wraps up at 8:00 pm on Halloween night, October 31, 2022

Reminders for trick or treaters

Halloween festivities are best enjoyed with a measure of safety... the fun ends quickly if someone gets hurt.

  • Trick or treat together in small groups - kids should never go alone (even superheroes have sidekicks). A cell phone is a great safety net for older kids.
  • Can you see? Make sure your mask, wig, hat or cyclops eye doesn't mean you are tripping, getting hurt and heading home early.
  • Can people see you? Add something reflective or bright to your costume or candy bag so people can see you.
  • Only trick or treat at houses with lights turned on and NEVER enter a stranger's house, even if you are invited.
  • Let your parents go through treats and toss out any sketchy, open or unpackaged treats before you dig in.
  • Don’t criss-cross streets or run out from between parked vehicles. The gory stuff is meant to be pretend, not an actual car accident.

Driving on Halloween

  • Slow down and expect kids to pop out at any time. Don't forget they are excited and sugared up.
  • NEVER drink and drive.

Homeowners entertaining ghosts and ghouls at the door

  • If you are participating in Halloween, keep your lights on and porch or walkway clear of things kids could trip on.
  • It's encouraged to use candy chutes, slides, and tongs to deliver goodies with children standing further back than usual
  • Lighted pumpkins should be placed away from flammable objects and never left unattended. Better yet, use a small flashlight or glow stick in jack-o-lanterns.
  • Fireworks are not allowed in the City of Colwood unless you have taken a fireworks safety course and have obtained a permit.
  • Pet owners should keep their animals inside while trick or treaters are out and about. Pets and kids can both be a little unpredictable with all the Halloween excitement.

Fireworks Safety

Please follow safety precautions to avoid burns, blast injuries and fire hazards.

  • Fireworks are not permitted in the City of Colwood without a permit and a current safety course certificate. 
  • Only those 18 years of older, with a permit, may possess or discharge fireworks.
  • Choose a safe outdoor area for discharging fireworks: a bare area of ground away from buildings, overhead obstructions, trees, vehicles, dry grass and other flammables.
  • Spectators should watch from a safe distance, at least 20 metres upwind.
  • Have a garden hose or a large bucket of water or sand ready at the site.
  • Never point or throw fireworks at anyone or anything.
  • Never hold fireworks in your hand while lighting them.
  • Never attempt to re-light or move fireworks that fail to go off.
  • Firecrackers and bottle rockets are prohibited throughout Canada by federal regulation.
