Unlike previous years, trick or treaters in Calgary will not have to contend with a snow storm or bitter cold this Halloween.

“We don’t see this very often at end of October, usually we do have snow on the ground,” said Global Calgary weatherman Jordan Witzel.

“By about nine o’clock we’ll sit at nine degrees. “

Not too scary at all.

“The kids can show off their costumes instead of bulking up under winter jackets.. it’ll be great., said Miriam Joly, who’s son Theo is dressing up as a cow.

But Joly remembers other Halloweens when she went out under-dressed.

“I was probably eleven, dressed as a punk rocker.. insisting on not wearing a jacket.. and I froze,” recalled Joly.

It’s not just good news for ghosts and goblins on the trick or treat trail.

With Halloween falling on a Friday, local restaurants and bars are expecting a busy and lucrative night.

“It’s going to be great for business,” said Jon Molyneux of the National.

“I think especially because of all the foot traffic down here on 17th Avenue –  a lot of our business is weather dependent – it’s going to be a great night on 17th.”

But is it perfect storm for trouble in Calgary?

“The disturbers like to get outside too,” said Cst. Jim Lebedeff of the Calgary Police Service.

With that in mind, CPS will have extra eyes and ears out on streets.  And police ask people to be extra cautious this “hallows eve”.

Partner agencies will also be in residential neighborhoods, ensuring everyone can safely enjoy mother nature’s halloween treat.
