COSHOCTON – Hundreds lined up to enjoy the Fourth annual Trail and Treat event held at Clary Gardens on Tuesday, Oct. 29. The event started at 4:30 p.m., but excited children were lining up early and hoping for their favorite treats.

Gage, Graysen and Grady Lowe were among the first in line. Gage was hoping to get a large Butterfinger candy bar and that’s what Graysen wanted, too. Grady was just hoping for a big candy bar. Jozie Adams wanted chocolate, too, while her younger brother, Jagger, wanted gum.

Emma Bechtol was at the Trail and Treat with her dad, Brad. This was their first time there and Emma wanted chocolate, too. David Rainer, Jr. was proud to be Superman and be strong and brave. Alden and Reid West were dressed as scary clowns, while their little sister, Emmy, was Minnie Mouse. Many adults came in costume with their children.

Jandi Adams, from Clary Gardens, said the event has definitely grown ever since it started four years ago. “We’ve kind of learned each year how to make it better.  It’s always lots of fun – we have so many volunteers and we couldn’t do it without them.”

This year, a large tent was set up where games and educational activities were located. “This season is so beautiful, especially October with the Scarecrow Trail.  It means so much that so many people attend this and enjoy the gardens,” Adams said.

One of the volunteers was Karlie Lahna, who was volunteering with her school’s National Honor Society. She was dressed as a bald eagle. “It’s fun to help and give the kids candy. I loved trick or treating when I was a kid and it’s cute to see them all in their costumes.”

Besides the bald eagle, children could get candy from a lady bug, bee, bullfrog, spider, reindeer and other animals/insects. Along with candy, a fun fact was shared by each volunteer as the children walked by.
