Get ready for Halloween fun! The Vail Recreation District will host the 25th Annual Trick or Treat Trot on Tuesday, October 31, 2017. The Trick or Treat Trot is a great opportunity for young kids (infants up to 10-year-olds, plus their families) to trick-or-treat through the streets of Vail from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Starting at welcome booths in both Vail Village and Lionshead, costumed trick-or-treaters will be greeted and given free balloons. They will then be pointed in the direction of participating merchants, who will display oversized jack-o-lantern bags at their entrances. This popular event takes place rain, snow or shine.
A limited number of Trick or Treat Trot bags will be available at the Covered Bridge in Vail Village and by the archway in Lionshead on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants are also encouraged to bring their own reusable bags.
Before trick-or-treating, join us from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. for spooky stories and tall tales at the Vail Public Library's Halloween Story Hour.
The Vail Rec District is also hosting a Halloween coloring contest. Download the Coloring Contest information page and coloring sheet and get your kiddos started on creating their Halloween-inspired drawing.
The Trick or Treat Trot is organized by the VRD Community Programming Department and is sponsored by the Vail Daily and Pazzo's Pizzeria. For more information, call 970-479-2292.
New this year, the VRD will be partnering with the Town of Vail on a Treats for Troops program. Drop off your leftover candy in November and it will be donated to soldiers and veterans! Click on the image to enlarge.
