19th annual Enchanted Forest event this Saturday

Join WisCorps at Myrick Park in La Crosse for a fall festival and trick-or-treat event, Enchanted Forest, presented by Mayo Clinic Health System – Franciscan Healthcare.
On Saturday, Oct. 20, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m., there will be lots of family friendly fun happening in the park for children of all ages and all abilities! Families follow the Enchanted path where they meet their favorite fairy tale characters while gathering treats along the way.  
At the end of the Enchanted Forest trail, children discover fun fall games, magic, snacks, Mad Science, not-so-creepy critters, and more.
The La Crosse community has cherished this event as the premier non-spooky Halloween event in the area. Not only is this non-spooky event appropriate for all ages, WisCorps also strives to make Enchanted Forest accessible for people of all abilities. In addition to the Enchanted trail being wheelchair and stroller friendly, all-terrain power wheelchairs called Action Trackchairs will be available to reserve at no cost. Contact WisCorps to reserve in advance.
New in 2018, Enchanted Forest will be participating in the Teal Pumpkin Project. This project, led by the Food Allergy Research & Education foundation, allows children with food allergies or children unable to have candy for various reasons, to be included in trick-or-treating festivities. This year, 9 of the 17 trick-or-treat stations will be giving out non-food treats. This will be signified by a teal pumpkin at the station and the Enchanted Forest map. Please note there will still be candy and food at this event.
WisCorps is a non-profit organization headquartered at the Myrick Park Center. Their mission is “to develop leadership, self-confidence, and a strong work ethic in youth and young adults through the active stewardship of Wisconsin’s communities and natural resources.”
WisCorps values environmental sustainability and will offer event goers the opportunity to purchase reusable treat bags for $5, in order to reduce waste caused by single-use materials.
Enchanted Forest acts as a fundraiser for WisCorps, and has brought over 3,000 people to the park in recent years. The event is valuable to the community, promoting an active lifestyle, healthier alternatives and inclusivity.
