This is the 5th year, and the Trick or Treat Trail will be back, Saturday, October 27th, from 2-4 pm, at Manthey Park, in Owatonna. Local businesses and groups will be there with treats, games, crafts, and/or prizes for the little ghosts and goblins who walk through the trail.

There will be a free train ride, free scavenger hunt, free petting zoo, and new this year, a trail specifically for your 4-legged family members called Woof or Treat Trail. You can dress Fido up in costume and take a separate trail for the pets to do their own begging, er, trick or treating. Did I mention the whole event is FREE? You can get information closer to the date by checking their Facebook event, the link to that is here.

So much fun for the whole family, and it's always a blast to see the costumes the kiddos are wearing. Makes me wish, sometimes, that my children were still young enough for me to pick out their costumes.
