Watson Sticks With 911 Theme For Halloween

- October 23rd, 2012

Mayor Jim Watson, always wanting to be fair, says he’ll be a paramedic for Halloween this year.

Last year he was a firefighter. So, I guess we can assume he’s lining up a police uniform for Halloween 2013.

Watson joked that the emergency services costumes are easy choices because he can just borrow them from the city.

The annual Trick or Treat with the Mayor is this Saturday at City Hall. It’s always popular. Usually staff have the heritage building all spooked out. And the event supports a great cause: The Ottawa Food Bank’s baby supply cupboard.

The details…

Trick or Treat with the Mayor

Date: Saturday, October 27, 2012
Time: 5 to 7:30 pm
Location: Ottawa City Hall – Heritage Building, Jean Pigott Place and Marion Dewar Plaza.

Admission: A donation to the Ottawa Food Bank’s Baby Supply Cupboard

Join Mayor Jim Watson for a safe Halloween party and an evening full of spook-tacular fun!

Start by trick or treating through the haunted house in the Heritage Building. Receive a warm welcome from the Mayor and get sweet treats from some of your favorite costumed characters in Jean Pigott Place. The fun continues! Decorate your very own miniature pumpkin in the outdoor pumpkin patch and enjoy horse-drawn hay rides on Marion Dewar Plaza, where even more treats from our sponsors await you!

This is the Mayor’s sixth annual Halloween event in support of the Ottawa Food Bank’s Baby Supply Cupboard which helps parents in need by providing items in high demand such as formula, baby food and diapers. Chronic shortages of donations of these basic needs make stocking the Baby Supply Cupboard one of the Food Bank’s most expensive, but most precious priorities.
