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.
