Give a healthy Halloween alternative

​If you're searching for a healthy alternative to handing out Halloween candy this year, swim and skate pass coupon books are once again available thanks to 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 available for just $5 each to provide residents with an affordable alternative to Halloween candy.

These popular coupon books sell out quickly so residents are encouraged to buy their booklets early. They can be purchase on the third floor of City Hall or at Nicholas Sheran, Stan Siwick and the Fritz Sick pools. The coupons are good until January 6, 2019 and can be used at any City arena or Recreation Excellence operated swimming pool during regular public hours.

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.
