City of Wyoming Hosts Newly Branded Trick or Treat Trail Event

Posted on Thursday, September 19, 2019 | Press & Media, News & Announcements

It’s time to get the kids together and pull out your family’s favorite costumes because Trick or Treat Trail is right around the corner!

After a widely received social media contest, fans of Wyoming Parks and Recreation’s Facebook page unanimously voted to rename Pumpkin Path to Trick or Treat Trail. The event has been titled Pumpkin Path for the last 14 years.

The City of Wyoming and its Parks and Recreation team is excited to once again host this signature community event under a new name but with many of the traditional elements the community has come to know and love. Trick or Treat Trail is a free event for kids and families on Saturday, Oct. 12 at Lamar Park, 2561 Porter St. SW. The event will be held from 4-6 p.m. Local businesses, clubs and organizations will host spaces along the path and will hand out candy, coupons and other goodies.

“The newly branded Trick or Treat Trail was created to be a fun, safe, family-friendly event for the fall, providing an alternative to traditional Halloween events,” said Rebecca Rynbrandt, director of community services for the City of Wyoming.  “Trick or Treat Trail gives families the perfect opportunity to interact with neighborhood businesses while enjoying the outdoors, Lamar Park and the beauty of the fall season.”

In addition to receiving treats, children should also look forward to a DJ and dancing, face painting, jumping in various bounce houses and games. Participants are welcome to come in costume or in regular clothes.

In previous years, the event has welcomed over 65 local businesses and organizations, and more than 6,000 children, parents, grandparents and friends.
