The Foróige WAY Project are delighted to once again host this year’s annual Trick or Treat on the Street on the 27th of October.
Trick or treaters are invited to dress up as whatever their imaginations can muster and join this town-wide event that sees 52 local retailers handing out goodies and surprises throughout the day.
You can register you and your little ghouls for this great event by heading down to The De La Salle Pastoral Centre between 11am and 12pm on the day.
Once registered, you will receive a trail featuring approximately 15 stops (local businesses). Children must answer a question before moving on to the next shop. The route will lead them through the town and, once completed, they will return to the starting point to receive their reward.
Usually attended by over 300 people, this year’s Trick or Treat on the Street promises to be an unmissable event for all the family.
For further information, please contact Sarah on 086 0405513.
A spokesperson for the the Foróige WAY Project has thanked local businesses for all of their support:
“We would like to kindly thank our sponsors; Earls Newsagents, Butlers Medical Hall, The Grand Hotel, and Care Plus pharmacy. We would also like to thank all the businesses who are getting involved and making this event happen!
“We would also like to thank all the local businesses who have signed up and contributed in order to make this a free event for all the family.”
The Foróige WAY Project is a Garda Youth Diversion Project in Wicklow Town that works with over 20 young people weekly, to involve themselves consciously and actively in their development and in the development of society.
The project works with young people aged 12-17 years and offers opportunities for education, employment training, health & wellbeing and other activities. The projects seek to encourage a better quality of life for everyone in the community and to support good relations between the Gardaí, young people and the community.
This project is part supported by the Irish Government and the European Social Fund as part of the ESF Programme for Employability, Inclusion, and Learning 2014-2020.
