Every Halloween, Friends of Foster Park hosts a Halloween Pumpkin Walk. Students at the local schools carve over 400 pumpkins, that are then placed and lit along the forest trails in the park.
The trail is well maintained, accessible for strollers, and the event is family and friendly to all ages. At the end of the trail, all kids receive a free Goodie Bag.
There will be free hot chocolate and $1 hot dogs for sale. This event is generally cost neutral, with the proceeds from the food sales covering the cost of the pumpkins, and other associated expenses. Any money left over, is used to support future events (such as the Easter Egg hunt) and improvements at the park.
This event is made possible by support of many local retailers.
