Sweet success at inaugural Penticton Trick or Treat Cycle Path

Kiwanis Club event saw five bags of food donated to Keep the Cold Off Penticton

More than 200 costumed kids and their bikes took in the inaugural Trick or Treat Cycle-Path at the Penticton Safety Village this Halloween.

The event, organized by the Penticton Kiwanis Club, saw visitors donate five boxes of food which was brought to Keep the Cold Off Penticton and Fill the Food Gap Penticton.

“Thank you simply does not articulate how much we appreciate every single sponsor, volunteer or attendee that made the inaugural Penticton Trick or Treat Cycle-Path such a success,” said Kiwanis Club member Katie Weitz on the Kiwanis Facebook page.

They have already started brainstorming for Easter and next Halloween, she added.

The Trick or Treat Cycle Path sold out within two hours of posting the event online. To stay within COVID-19 safety protocols they had to limit the number of kids that could come.

Halloween blow ups, plenty of spiderwebs and more filled the Safety Village, while kids trick or treated on their bicycles.

The Penticton Vees also handed out candy as well.

Kiwanis put together a video of what the Cycle Path looked like on Halloween. Check it out below.
