Trick or Treat Trot set for Saturday
Ghosts, goblins, rockstars, fairies, princesses and superheroes – plus young artists – should mark their calendars to attend the 23rd annual Trick or Treat Trot
taking place Saturday, Oct. 31 in the streets of Vail Village and Lionshead.
Children, ages infant through 10 years old and their families, are invited to participate in the Vail Recreation District’s Halloween festivities, which begin at 10:30 a.m.
at the Vail Public Library with a Scarecrow Making Contest followed by Halloween Story Hour at 1 p.m.
From 2 to 5 p.m.
costumed children will gather and trick-or-treat through the streets of Vail Village and Lionshead village receiving goodies from participating merchants. Participating merchants are identifiable by an oversized jack-o-lantern bag displayed at their entrance and will offer children safe treats. In past years, over 300 children and their families have participated in this informal costume parade and celebrated Halloween in the shops and restaurants of Vail.
A limited number of Trick or Treat Trot bags will be available at the Covered Bridge in Vail Village and near the archway in Lionshead on a first-come, first-served basis. The VRD also encourages participants to bring their own reusable bags.
Trick or Treat Trot is organized by VRD Community Programming and sponsored by Vail Daily and Pazzo’s Pizzeria. For more information on the Halloween festivities, call 970-479-2292 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
