The ninth annual Trail of Treats is approaching quickly, and vendors are being sought to hand out sweet treats to the tiny tricksters. 

Trail of Treats is a community event where kids can safely trick or treat on Halloween, Oct. 31, from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Recreation program director Michael Benusches is looking forward to this event, especially since they were not able to have it last year due to COVID-19.

“It is one of our biggest events of the year,” said Benusches. “We want to help make this event good for kids of all ages and their families.”

 McMinnville Parks and Recreation are looking for any churches, businesses, civic groups and non-profits that want to help out this Halloween and provide their own booth which will provide candy and or activities for the children who attend.

Each vendor needs to make sure they have enough candy, treats, toys, etc. to accommodate a large crowd. They recommend at least 2,000 pieces so no one will be left out. 

The booths are 10’ by 10’ and if more space is required, the vendor should mention how many spaces are needed on the application. Those wanting to set up a booth will need to plan on setting things up no later than 4:30 p.m. and vehicles will not be permitted after 4:45 to ensure safety for the children trick or treating. Tables, chairs, extension cords, or display lights are not provided, but electricity can be arranged if needed.

Potential vendors will need to fill out an application and those are located at the front desk of Milner Recreation Center or they can be found by emailing Benusches at mbenusches@mcminnvilletn.gov. The due date for the application is Oct. 15 and they can be turned in at Milner Recreation Center or emailed to Benusches. 

Trail of Treats will be located outside at Milner Recreation Center on Halloween.
