This Brampton Family's Rooftop Candy Zip Line Just Won Halloween (VIDEO)

If you live in the Peel Village region of Brampton, Halloween is definitely not cancelled.

One house, in particular, has a nifty — and very socially distanced — means of dispensing treats. 

Not letting the COVID-19 pandemic dampen his Halloween spirit, Don Kirkpatrick created the unique contraption because “kids are missing out on a lot” and that he “wanted to do something fun for them.”

Kirkpatrick started working on the project about a week ago and “had it all figured out” except for one element he says. How was he going to attach the candy to the delivery mechanism in order to get it from the roof to the trick-or-treating kids below?
