For those looking for an alternative to handing out candy this Halloween, swim and skate pass coupon books are once again available through a partnership between the City of Lethbridge and Recreation Excellence.
Coupon books containing 10 passes – five for free swimming and five for free skating – are offered for only $5 at this time each year to provide people with an affordable alternative to Halloween candy.
These popular coupon books sell out quickly so citizens are encouraged to buy their booklets early. Booklets can be purchase on the third floor of City Hall or at any City of Lethbridge swimming pool while supplies last. The coupons are good until December 31, 2016 and can be used at any City arena or pool during regular public hours - including the new ATB Centre.
Coupons are a great alternative for trick-or-treaters with food allergies as well as to promote a healthy, active lifestyle for all kids. There is a high return rate on the coupons each year proving they are appreciated and used by the families that receive them.
This offer aligns with the Teal Pumpkin Project, an international movement to make Halloween more inclusive for all children by creating awareness of food allergies. For information and resources on how you can join the Teal Pumpkin Project visit www.tealpumpkin.org.
