The Community

Allendale is a lovely, mature neighbourhood, located halfway between Whyte Avenue and Southgate. The land was originally owned by the Allen family at the turn of the century but became part of Edmonton when Edmonton and Strathcona amalgamated in 1921. Development in the area started prior to WW1, but it was the late 1940s and early 1950s when most of the development occurred.

COVID-19 Safety Tips for Trick or Treating

AHS has created the following 5 guidelines for your little ‘ghosts and goblins’ to follow this year when trick-or-treating:

Don't go trick-or-treating if feeling ill, even if symptoms are minor

Choose costumes that allow a non-medical mask to be worn underneath, and make sure you can see and breathe comfortably

Minimize contact with others: trick-or-treat with your family or cohort, remain within your community, and stay 2 metres apart

Avoid touching doorbells or railings: call "trick or treat" from 2 metres away, knock instead of using doorbells, use hand sanitizer after touching surfaces

Wash hands and disinfect packages before eating candy
