Trick or Treat Trot

Get ready for Halloween fun! The Vail Recreation District will host the 31st Annual Trick or Treat Trot on Tuesday, Oct. 31, 2023. 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.

Two smiling women in hats pose with a sign saying "The Witch is in," suggesting a playful, possibly Halloween-themed photo.

Participating merchants will have an orange jack-o-lantern leaf bag outside their front door. Trick-or-treating may begin in Lionshead or Vail Village. The Trick or Treat Trot takes place rain, snow or shine! Participants are asked to bring their own reusable bags.
