MP Halloween celebration 2020

Hello MP families,

The MP Children and Families Committee has been working hard to make a spooktacular Halloween happen for our kids! We plan to host a safe Halloween trick-or-treating party on the outdoor MP playground with music, a magician, pizza, and more! 

There will be safely-distanced “spooky spots” for people to pass out candy while the kids walk around trick-or-treating. Candy can be in a bowl or you can get more elaborate and bring a folding table, stroller or cart to decorate your spot. We really need families to volunteer to bring and distribute candy so we have enough treats and stations!

If you want to host a candy “spooky spot” and/or bring your children to trick-or-treat, please complete the survey to RSVP by 10/17 with how many children and how many adults will be joining so we can estimate how many people to expect.

Date: Saturday, October 31st 
Time: 4pm – 7pm
Location: MP playground 
*Rain Date: Sunday, November 1st 

Safety Information: Due to Covid 19, we ask all participating families to please wear masks at the celebration. If you are passing out candy, we ask that you also wear gloves. As much as we would love to open the event to friends outside the building, we need to limit this party to residents only because of crowding issues and social distancing. We kindly ask that you leave bikes/scooters at home so we have enough walking space for the kids. Thank you all for understanding. We are excited to give our kids a wonderful Halloween.
