WNEP-TV’s 10th Annual Trail of Treats

Posted on: 1:16 pm, October 22, 2013, by , updated on: 01:15pm, October 22, 2013

Trail of Treats 2013 presented a special day for special needs kids and young adults.

Annual Trail of Treats is more than trick or treating. Students and clients, dressed in their Halloween-best, will gain valuable social experiences while enjoying treats and entertainment.

WNEP-TV hosts two events with community-minded sponsors. The events are “BY INVITATION ONLY” through WNEP and are further hosted by the Ramada Inn on Public Square, Wilkes-Barre and the Best Western Plus at Country Cupboard, Lewisburg.

Reservations at both venues are now closed.

Watch Newswatch 16 @ Noon for live reports from the events: Thursday, Oct. 24th (Lewisburg); Tuesday, Oct. 29th (Wilkes-Barre).

Enjoy videos and photos of the events.

Here are some of the companies and non-profits who are involved this year:
