All children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult, and please note that no pets are allowed this time.
Registration and check-in will begin at 6:00 pm, with the Halloween trail officially commencing at 6:30 pm. For safety reasons, latecomers will not be allowed to participate once the last participant has left the starting line.
