Hallowe’en ready in West Carleton

WEST CARLETON – The Village of Carp Hallowe’en Scavenger Hunt is already on and Fitzroy Harbour residents are making preparations to let kids know the haves and the have nots for upcoming Candy Night.

On Oct. 20 the Huntley Community Association (HCA) announced it was looking for volunteer homes dressing up for the holidays. Well, they came forward and the scavenger hunt is now on. Kids and their parents can visit 10 homes in the Carp area that have put out their spookiest decoration and try to find all the items at each location.

The scavenger hunt is on now and runs until Oct. 31 at approximately 11 p.m. To see the addresses and item questions look at the list at the bottom of the story.

In the Fitzroy Harbour area, community members have published a Google Map with the locations of homes that will be offering Hallowe’en treats on the scary night. There are already 35 locations published to the map. For those with cell phones, the map can be easily accessed on Google and get you to the candy on Hallowe’en night.

“If you or your trick-or-treater has Google Maps installed on their phone, click on the map image, then click the three-dot ‘menu’ icon at the top right, then click ‘open in maps,’ map creator Lori Stanton released in a statement. “Map-to-go!”
