Bayswater Halloween Trail takes a break for 2020
Earlier on in the year, the team at Devonport Peninsula Trust needed to make some decisions about the event programme for the coming 2020/2021 season. After much consideration, it was decided to give the Bayswater Halloween Trail a break this year and we plan to bring it back next year.
There were a number of reasons that informed our decision. One of the key reasons was the feeling amongst our team to provide a lower key event in a Covid-19 Alert Level 1 environment. Another key reason is that the Bayswater Halloween Trail depends heavily on the generosity of sponsors, and in the current climate, we did not feel comfortable relying on our supporters in this way.
We want to thank the community for all their wonderful participation in this event and we look forward to bringing it back full steam next year.
When: Sunday, 17 March 2019, 10.30am-1pm
Where: Windsor Reserve
Bring the family and explore special locations around Devonport by bike or on foot.
