It’s that time of year again, where children and adults alike dress up and gorge on every type of candy you can think of. Halloween has stayed pretty popular, but it seems like every year fewer kids actually venture out on Oct 31 to collect candy.
But if you’re a parent, relative or sibling responsible for taking the littles out this year here’s a list of the best neighbourhoods to go trick-or-treating.
Peel Village is made up of families, many of which have lived in the community for a long time. Lots of people hand out candy, and it’s a relatively safe place to go out when it’s dark.
The M Section
Most pockets of the M section have schools nearby so there are usually lots of kids out on Halloween night. That and people still hand out candy. We recommend areas off Mackay Street around Maitland, as well as around Massey Street Public School.
The B Section
In the B section there’s a nice little pocket of streets off Brookland Drive that’s great for trick-or-treating. There are a few streets that branch from Brookland so you can cover a decent amount of ground without tiring the little ones out too much, and it’s relatively safe with no major streets to cross.
Heart Lake is a great little area in Brampton with lots of families and residents who have been in the city for a long time. The streets around Loafer’s Lake are a great place to trick-or-treat.
Snelgrove is a little pocket at the corner of Mayfield Road and Hurontario Street. Lots of families live in the area, it’s close to a school, and it’s a great place for trick-or-treating if you’re not interested in trekking south into some of the other neighbourhoods in Brampton.
