We have equipment to jump start your car when the movie is over.

Pop Up Cinema Halloween Trunk or Treat Rules

 

How do I prepare for the event?

  • Plan to give out enough candy for up to 250 persons.

  • You do not have to give out candy. You can still participate in Trunk or Treat by decorating your vehicle or looking at what others have done to their vehicles. 

  • You may leave your vehicle spot, and candy can be given out between 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM. Announcements will be made to let people know. 

  • Do not feel that you have to stay at your location the whole time, enjoy walking around and trunk or treating yourself! 

  • The gates open at 3:00 PM to allow persons to check-in, park, set-up and get ready. We will not allow cars to enter between 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM for the safety of everyone participating. There are no exceptions to this rule. 

  • Only give out candy from your designated spot. 

  • Candy is to be store bought, pre-packaged food only. Please be considerate of  common food allergies such as nuts. 

  • Gates re-open to vehicle traffic at 5:30 PM. An announcement will be made, and at this time you should return to your vehicle to prepare for the movie. There will be DJ music, interactive trivia and the costume contest will be on the screen. 

 

General Rules: 

  • Participants must have a ticket to attend. A member from your vehicle must provide contact information when purchasing a ticket. All participants must enter via a vehicle through the main entrance. No walk-ins are allowed. 

  • Maintain physical distancing of 2m from other bubbles. 

  • Wear a non-medical mask where physical distancing is not possible (waiting in lines, going to the bathroom, interacting with candy givers. 

  • Do not replace your non-medical mask with a Halloween costume mask. Most Halloween masks that cover the whole face have holes for breathing. While this type of mask is fine to wear outdoors or in your home, it is not a non-medical mask that fits snugly and protects others.

  • Make use of hand-sanitizing stations located throughout the venue. 

  • Practice good hand hygiene, cough/sneeze etiquette.

  • Bubbles may not exceed 10 persons.

  • Sorry, but pets are not permitted at this event. 


If you are planning on participating in trunk-or-treating, here are some important things to consider:

  • do not attend the event if you are feeling unwell or are self-isolating

  • only trick-or-treat with people you live with, or friends from your close social group, and no more than 10 people

  • if you see other kids getting treats from a car or pass another group in the rows, stay six feet away and wait until they leave before proceeding

  • keep conversations short. Do not sing or shout in exchange for Halloween candy

  • do not take treats in situations where everyone has to reach into a single container

  • bring hand sanitizer with you and clean your hands often, especially if you are putting on and taking off a mask or face covering and touching high-touch surfaces. Make use of hand sanitizer stations. 

  • wash your hands before and after handling and eating your treats. There is no need to clean, disinfect or quarantine treats

  • Please make sure you and your family can be seen in the dark. Wear a reflective clothing item, or have glow sticks to make sure you are seen.

  • Have fun! 

Advice for vehicles giving out treats:

  • do not participate in any Halloween activities, including handing out store bought pre-packaged treats if you are feeling unwell or self-isolating

  • welcome trick-or-treaters outside of your vehicle. Bring a lawn chair and sit or stand outside of your vehicle. 

  • if you are unable to sit outside then regularly clean and disinfect any point of contact with your vehicle

  • wash your hands often throughout the evening with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer 

  • try to have only one person from your car give out treats

  • do not have many hands reaching into the same container. Use tongs or other utensils to hand out treats or place individual amounts on a table

  • Do not leave bowls of candy where people can help themselves by reaching in. 

  • wear a non-medical mask when physical distancing cannot be maintained

  • do not ask trick-or-treaters to sing or shout for their treats.

 

From the government of Nova Scotia:

Government is reminding Nova Scotians of current public health guidelines and providing specific advice around Halloween as the holiday approaches.

“Halloween is a fun celebration but I am concerned about parties and behaviours that would see us letting our guard down,” said Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia’s chief medical officer of health. “I urge Nova Scotians to make informed decisions before choosing to attend or host Halloween parties or events. We have been fortunate to have few or no new cases recently, but as we have seen with our neighbouring provinces, COVID-19 can quickly find its way back into our communities. We must continue to follow all public health measures.”
