​​​TRICK OR TREAT ON THE TRAIL [OCTOBER 27TH, 2018]                          (POSTED 9/24/2018)

Every year, the Saturday before Halloween we put on a fun, family Halloween event with our very own YMCA healthy twist. Families who join us for Trick-or-Treat on the Trail will enjoy an exciting family hike up Badger Mountain while dressed up in their favorite costumes! Children of all ages trick-or-treat for healthy goodies along the trail. After the Halloween hike, families stick around to enjoy our Harvest Party which includes games and activities for the whole family to enjoy! This is a FREE event made possible by community sponsors.
YMCA is looking for Volunteers to either hike the trail and pass out goodies at the stations, or help with the harvest party games and activities. We are needing around 50 volunteers to arrive 7am-1pm to help with set up and clean up. Please contact Kari at Kari@ymcatricities.org with names and t-shirt size if interested.
