Event Details

What’s better than going door to door and coming away with a bucketful of candy? Often lost in the hustle and bustle of Halloween is that children with a physical disability who use a wheelchair for mobility often get left out of this typical trick or treat experience. Most front doors are inaccessible, so these children don’t get the same experience of actually knocking on a door and coming away with candy that other children do. With our accessible trick or treat trail, we bring the full trick or treat experience to children with disabilities.

Who: This fully accessible trick-or-treat trail is for everyone!  Walking or rolling down the path, participants can come dressed in their costumes and trick-or-treat without barriers of lawns, steps or stone driveways.  In partnership with Barnes Preserve, this unique experience is a way to show support for individuals with disabilities, as well as enjoying the camaraderie of a traditional yearly event.

How: Trick or treat participants will experience a fun and fully lit 1/2 mile trail, a craft to take home, and games!  Vote for your favorite decorated door and scarecrows (new this year)! 

When: Sunday, October 24th, 2021, Sunday, October 31st (rain date) 3:00pm-6:00pm, with reserved trick or treat times for up to 6 participants per time slot.  The last group slot available is at 5:30 p.m.  Plan on your trick or treat time on the trail to last at least 30 mins.  Arrive before or stay after to enjoy the activities at the pavilion depending on your reservation time.

Where: Barnes Preserve – 3396 Sylvan Rd., Wooster, OH 44691

Cost: $6.00 per child (plus online payment processing fee)
