The 2023 Corso Italia Halloween event was a resounding success. St Clair Avenue was filled with costumed ghouls, ghosts, and an adorable cast of characters. The event featured a balloonist, caricaturist, magician, and magical mascots that captivated and thrilled our young guests. The Pumpkin House was a hit with young and old, and the bouncy house had lineups for eager participants to have a go.

So many businesses participated in the Trick-or-Treating, with many of them adding their own unique flavour to the event. From face painting at Bees Are Life, to the Day of The Dead alters at El Sazon and La Tienda, to’s spellbinding inflatable display, to Tre Mari’s spooky food truck, and many other businesses pulling out the stops along the Corso, providing engaging activities for event goers up and down the whole street.

Corso Italia events are sponsored and organized by the Corso Italia BIA. Their success is dependent on the participation of the organizations business members.
