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.”
Let’s pass on some fun for the kids.
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?
Shower curtain rings.
With those now in place, he plans to complete the setup with a fog machine, webbing, and some music.
So if you find yourself on Chesterfield Road in Peel Village on Halloween, check out this great setup in action. And as Kirkpatrick says, “let’s hope we all get through this and let’s pass on some fun for the kids.”
