Trick Or Treat on the Trail
Linn County Trails Association hosted 30+ children and families along the Boyson Trail at Thomas Park in Marion on Sunday October 31st for Trick or Treat on the Trail.  Kids stopped at the LAMBA (Linn Area Mountain Biking Asssocation) to get their first round of candy.  The next stop was getting Halloween tattoos on their hands and face. There was a station for doing a leaf drawing and guessing the mystery items that felt like brains and hearts...last, but not least, they stopped at the scary pumpkin man who was handing out fresh cookies and more candy!  At 4:00, the Marion Public Library did a 'Ghost Reading', which was a huge success for the children in attendance!  Thanks for all the trail supporters who stopped by!
