Petes Not-So-Scary Drive-By Delivered Thousands of Treats and Smiles to Peterborough

November 2, 2020 - Ontario Hockey League (OHL) - Peterborough Petes News Release

(Peterborough, ON) - The Petes Not-so-Scary drive-by event delivered over 1,500 goodies and put countless smiles on faces across the City of Peterborough on Halloween night.

The Petes Halloween Truck powered by Merrett Home Hardware Building Centre and the Not-so-Scary team departed the Peterborough Memorial Centre (PMC) at 3:00 PM with an escort by the Peterborough Police Service to ensure everyone's safety. The route included a variety of residential areas across the city such as the west end, north end, east city, and downtown before concluding at the PMC at 9:00 pm.

"This event was incredibly well received by the Peterborough community. It was an amazing opportunity to connect with Petes fans and wouldn't have been made possible without the incredible support of Merrett Home Hardware Building Centre, Frito-Lays Canada, Morello's Independent Grocer, Peterborough Police Service, and Not-so-Scary team volunteers."

Roger the mascot and the team of candy distributors delivered treats that were generously provided by Frito-Lays Canada and Morello's Independent Grocer. The Petes followed and enforced all safety measures and protocols in place from Peterborough Public Health, which included a safe, physically distant exchange of candy.

The Petes would like to thank Frito-Lays Canada and Morello's Independent Grocer for donating hundreds of goods that were distributed, and Merrett Home Hardware Building Centre and the Peterborough Police Service for providing safe transportation.

The Not-so-Scary drive-by initiative, which launched on the website and was posted on the Petes social media channels from October 9-23, received close to 1,000 official entries, and even those who even those who didn't register were able to take part in the event.
