Trick or Treat Trot


Get ready for Halloween fun! The Vail Recreation District will host the 28th Annual Trick or Treat Trot on Saturday, Oct. 31. The Trick or Treat Trot is a great opportunity for kids (infants up to 10-year-olds, plus their families) to trick-or-treat through the streets of Vail from 2 to 5 p.m.
Starting at check-in booths in both Vail Village and Lionshead, costumed trick-or-treaters will be pointed in the direction of participating merchants. This popular event takes place rain, snow or shine! Participants are asked to bring their own reusable bags.
