Stay Spooky, Stay Safe
This year, Halloween might seem a little different. That’s why we created the Red Pumpkin Project – a Canada-wide community effort reminding families, friends, and Frankensteins to stay safe while having fun, whether you’re trick-or-treating or staying at home!
Wear or display a red pumpkin this Halloween to encourage your community to stay safe. For all our trick-or-treating tips, Halloween activities, and advice from Today’s Parent and industry experts, just scroll down…IF YOU DARE.
