Businesses and community organizations are invited to participate in the Miracle League of CT’s annual Trick-Or-Treat Miracle League Style event on Oct. 27.
Once again the Miracle League of Connecticut will create an “accessible neighborhood” on the Miracle League field in West Hartford.
The free event, which will be held Saturday, Oct. 27 from 2 to 4:30 p.m., is open to any child who has any type of disabilities and their siblings.
The field, located on the corner of Trout Brook and Asylum in West Hartford, provides a safe environment for trick-or-treating on the fully rubberized, wheelchair accessible surface.
Local businesses and organizations set up decorated tables and tents for children to visit on their trick-or-treating journey.
“This is one of our favorite days of the year at the Miracle Field,” said The Miracle League of Connecticut Executive Director Mike Michaud. “The joy on the children’s faces is so rewarding. We’re happy to make Halloween safe and accessible so all kids can enjoy it.”
The rain date for this event is Sunday, Oct. 28.
Spots are still available for those interested in giving out candy to the expected 300 to 350 children. To sign up call Michaud at 860-769-7056 or email [email protected].
