Stakeholder Launch Pad: Trick or Treat Chemainus

On Saturday, October 27 Chemainus will be filled with excited children celebrating Halloween at our annual TRICK OR TREAT CHEMAINUS event. DRIVE PEOPLE TO YOUR BUSINESS! The horse and trollies will be running and will feature a spooky scavenger hunt where passengers will look at business windows for decals as they move through town. To have your business part of this scavenger hunt, you must register - it's FREE and SIMPLE! You simply feature a halloween decal in your storefront (provided by CBIA), decorate your door/store front for halloween and provide candy for trick or treating. Your business will be listed on the scavenger hunt map that families use for the activity. WHY PARTICIPATE? A few hundred people will be in town going to businesses with their children to trick or treat. Ensure they don't miss your business by participating in the scavenger hunt. It's FREE!
