participating partners

How can you get involved? You are invited to take part in the fun, FREE of charge. Community spirit is in high demand. We are seeking partners who can decorate and man their own socially distanced booths and provide treats along our trail. Cars will drive through our trail and be surprised and delighted by what our community has to offer along the way. We want our community to be out in full force showing their spirit with sights and sounds that delight even from a distance. Your display, costumes, and interactions should be visually fun from the front seat or to children looking on from the backseat.This is not camp chairs and a bowl of candy kind of moment! You’ll need to pull out all the stops to WOW our trick or treaters!
