5th Annual Trick or Treat Trail — October 27, 2013 at 6:00 - 7:30 p.m. at the Clawson City Park
Bring a carved pumpkin between 5-5:30 p.m. for the pumpkin judging contest. After the contest the pumpkins will light the trail; you may pick up your winning pumpkins at 7:30 p.m. The event has been a spook-tacular success in the past and it allows children the chance to trick-or-treat in a safe and fun environment. A puppet show, trick or treating, cider and donuts and visits from Star War characters are the activities planned for the evening. Join us at Clawson City Park where trick or treaters of all ages are invited to this FREE community-wide event as local businesses and organizations line the walking path to create a trail and pass out candy and other goodies.
Don't let your business or organization be the only one in town to not participate! Join us, it's FREE! To reserve a FREE trail station for your business or organization, please download our Trick or Treat application and return it to the Parks & Recreation office or contact Penny Luebs at 248-259-6208.
Clawson Youth Assistance, along with Parks and Recreation, depend on volunteers to make the event a success. Call 248-589-0334 to volunteer today!
