The Woman’s Club of Evanston creates Fairy Tale Trail providing a safe, non-frightening, fun Halloween experience for children of all ages and abilities. Mermaids, wizards, safari guides and princesses welcome the children to the WCE clubhouse which is transformed into a maze of eight rooms – each showcasing a different children’s story or theme. Each fully accessible, fantasy-filled room features multi-sensory activities and costumed volunteers who engage and enchant children with and without special needs. Schools with programs for physically, cognitively, or economically challenged students who may not otherwise experience Halloween due to physical or financial limitations, attend free of charge for a special weekday field trip. A nominal admission fee is charged to the general public during weekend hours to fund all expenses to run and maintain the Trail, including bus scholarships. The VIP Character Meet & Greet Experience takes place 8:30-10:30 a.m. Oct. 31 and allows children to mix and mingle. Food, fun, activities and surprises make this a memorable experience. Register ahead of time at the website. The cost is $15 per child and $10 per adult. Children under 1 year are free. Fairy Tale Trail is open to the public 4-8 p.m. Oct. 30 and 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Oct. 31. Tickets can be purchased at the door. Attendees can also buy light snacks and refreshments at the Trail’s Pumpkin Patch Café. Children are encouraged to come in costume. Metered street, lot and garage parking are located within walking distance of the club. Check out a video preview at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qk3B4MtoneE See more information at the website.
