Halloween Treat Trail
Friday, October 26, 2018; 5 PM to 8 PM
Wendell Park, 601 W Third Street

Looking for a fun and SPOOKtacular outing for your young ghouls and goblins? Join us on the Treat Trail at Wendell Community Park! The trail is non-scary for our patrons 12 years of age and under – accompanied with an adult. Moms and Dads can meet the local businesses and our young ghouls and goblins have a howling good time collecting treats along the trail. The most creatively decorated vendor table receives a sweet treat from the Wendell Parks & Recreation Department. Join us on the Treat Trail for a ghoulishly splendid time!

Friday's forecast is looking wet and gloomy.  We won't let a little rain stop the fun for our young ghouls and goblins.  If it is rainy, we'll be inside the Wendell Community Center, 601 W Third Street.  Same location!!

About the Treat Trail: The Treat Trail is in its natural flora state and meanders through the trees of Wendell Park. Beware of the tree roots as these may pose a challenge to persons with mobility limitations.
