Put your hands up!
Drop that bag of chocolate bars. Move away from those boxes of serving-size potato chips. Run as though a zombie is chasing you to the nearest Ottawa recreation centre. And keep going until you fill up on the sweetest of Halloween treats: Trick or Swim or Skate Tickets.
You get 10 of them for $10 and they’re ideal to give those young ghosts and goblins who come to the door. When you hand out these holiday surprises, you won’t be “spooked” about the risks for allergies or obesity. And you won’t have to worry about turning into a giant pumpkin on legs after eating leftover candy. In fact, the opposite is true. These Halloween treats amount to health gifts. Kids love them and homeowners love dishing them out.
For kids aged three to 15, the public swim or skate tickets are valid from November 1 to January 31, 2014 and they’re on sale until October 31 at City of Ottawa swimming pools! Quantities are limited.
