For the third year in a row, the Lawrence Hopewell Trail will host the Trail and Treat Ride at Village Park in Lawrence. Children ages 12 and under and their families are invited to wear Halloween costumes, participate in bike rides and enjoy live music by the School of Rock, as well as free face painting. Children will also receive a pumpkin to decorate and trick-or-treat goodie bags.
Children six and older are invited on a mile-long ride, with a shorter, approximately quarter-mile, loop for younger children.
The event is free to participants, thanks to Investor’s Bank, which is sponsoring the ride by covering the LHT’s hosting costs. Other businesses supporting the event as donors include Willis Greenhouse, Starbucks and Wegmans.
Participants should gather at Village Park at the Bergen Street entrance/parking lot starting at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 22. Parents with bicycle trailers are welcome, and parent supervision is required. Online pre-registration is strongly encouraged by visiting the Lawrence Hopewell Trail website.
In case there is inclement weather, visit the website after noon on the day of the event to see if the ride is being postponed. For other questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
