Updates on Trick or Treat Trail, Hot Cocoa Hike

26 Oct

blue-hot-chocolate-cup-mdSo it looks like Mother Nature is brewing up some wet weather for Saturday. Hopefully it will hold off enough so that families can enjoy the Village of Webster’s Trick or Treat Trail.

The forecast has, however, caused the Friends of Webster Trails to reschedule the Hot Cocoa Hike, originally planned for Saturday night.

FWT President Shari Gnolek explained in the email I got this morning:

The weather forecast showed up to 3/4 of an inch of rain, 15 – 20mph winds, and a high of 42 degrees. Even if you were somehow excited about hiking in those conditions, the mud created by all of the hikers would generate a lot of damage to the trails after an already rainy fall season.

  • If you ARE signed up and CAN make it on November 10th – There is NOTHING you need to do.
  • If you ARE signed up and CAN’T make this new date – Please follow the link and CHANGE your RSVP to ‘No’.
  • If you AREN’T signed up, but you want to come on the new date – Please use the link to RSVP.

It’s the first time in eight years that the Friends have had to reschedule the hike.

The Trick or Treat Trail, on the other hand, is still happening!  And I have some more details about that.

Since I first blogged about this year’s event, I’ve found out there’s going to be a pet parade and costume contest in addition to the kids’ costume contest. You can click on the poster below to see the details, but here they are anyway:


The kids’ costume contest begins at 11 a.m. at the Community Meeting Room, 29 South Ave. To participate, remember to arrive between 11 and 11:30. Prizes will be awarded at 11:30.

The Trick-or-Treat Trail runs from noon to 3 p.m. Look for the pumpkins in the windows of the participating businesses.

The Howl-o-ween Pet Costume Contest and Parade is at 12:30 p.m. Participants should gather near Village Hall on West Main, and everyone will parade to the gazebo at Veterans Memorial Park for judging.

And this news also recently in: My daughter Erin — who writes the bi-weekly Village Beat column for the Webster Herald — and I will be among the judges this year for the pet costume contest! So come on out and meet us!

The BID Festival Wagon will be giving free wagon rides through the village, and make sure to stop by the fire department (on South Ave.) and the museum (on Lapham Park) for their open house activities.

The latest weather report doesn’t look promising — so bring an umbrella and let’s have some fun anyway!
