Remember, the key to a successful trick-or-treat haul is a good candy containment and mobility plan. Make sure you're more prepared than the third kid by making your own trick-or-treat bag for free at Living Faith Christian Church. File photo.

While Halloween night isn’t until Wednesday, there’s plenty of ways to celebrate early in Collingwood this weekend.

These events, all of which take place on Oct. 27, should be a good dress rehearsal opportunities for your family costumes and should also help extend the sugar rush, because there are definitely more treats than tricks.

What’s the rule on re-gifting Halloween candy when the kids start coming to your door?

Trick-or-Treat bag family craft day, Living Faith Christian Church

If your plan is to maximize your candy collection, you’ll need a vessel first. Happy Hearts Childcare has teamed up with Living Faith Christian Church in downtown Collingwood for a free craft day. Stop into the church for a warm tea or coffee (juice boxes for the kids) and your little monsters/witches/princesses can make their own trick-or-treat bags. The event runs 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 112 Hurontario Street.


Black Harvest Festival, Downtown Collingwood

This annual event begins at 11 a.m. downtown with family-friendly activities including crafts, balloon twisters and a costume contest at town hall at 1 p.m. Downtown businesses are also welcoming trick-or-treaters for the afternoon. Participating businesses will have an orange sign on the door to indicate there are treats inside.


Inclusive Halloween Party, Collingwood YMCA

At the Collingwood YMCA, there’s an inclusive Halloween party from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. This event is open to all kids and their families and will include accessible, indoor trick-or-treating and adapted games and activities to accommodate kids with special needs.


Dragonfly Outreach Halloween Bash, Central Park Arena

You can party ‘till you crash this Saturday. There will also be a family fun day at the Central Park Arena in Collingwood, including games, activities, contests and more trick-or-treating. The event runs 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.


Holiday Craft Sale, Trinity United Church
