  1. The carlingwood event was on the 28th not the 31st. The wrong information was really disappointing as now my toddler didn’t get to have a Halloween.

  2. your dates are all wrong.

    Carling wood mall event was Saturday Oct 28th 10-2pm
    Orleans mall is Tuesday Oct 31 at 10-2PM

    I just had trick or treat-ers disappointed because of your website.
