Happy Pumpkin

Since 2000, the Night Walk on the Panhandle Trail has been a Halloween tradition in Collier Township. This year the festivities begin at 7 pm on Saturday, October 22. The Rennerdale Youth Group will carve more than 100 pumpkins donated by Beccari’s Farm Market, Thoms Run Road. Collier Girl Scouts will set out and light the jack o’ lanterns along a half-mile stretch of the Trail from the bridge near the Walkers Mill trailhead to the Sunnyside entrance. Bonfires light the night and hot chocolate and sweet cider are distributed by Collier Friends of the Panhandle Trail. A costumed volunteer will delight the kids with stories near the Quarry bonfire.  There are Treat Bags for children aged 11 and under at the Quarry

The event is free but donations are welcome! Children, adults and volunteers are encouraged to wear costumes or weird hats. Parking is available in the Public Works Yard at 110 Noblestown Road.
