Troutman Parks and Recreation is sponsoring a Trails and Treats safe trick or treating event from 4 to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, October 31, at ESC Park. The event will take place on the quarter-mile paved walking trail at the park.
Area businesses, non-profits, and organizations will be on hand with decorated booths to hand out treats to the kids at this free event. Around 1,500 children and their parents are expected to attend.
Participating organizations are asked to arrive at 1 p.m. or after and to be set up by 3:30 p.m. Golf carts and volunteers will be available to help with loading and unloading. Each organization’s spot will be marked on the trail pavement.
Organizations are encouraged to decorate their booths and wear costumes to create a festive atmosphere.
Parking is available at the park, Town Hall, nearby side streets and the east side of North Eastway Drive.
