An inclusive trick-or-treating event was held Wednesday night for those children unable to go door-to-door on Halloween night.
The Center for Disability Rights held their annual "Accessible Trick-or-Treat" event on State Street. The event was open to all children who cannot trick-or treat due to disability, or to children who live in unsafe neighborhoods.
CDR's mission is to work for the independence, civil rights and integration of people of all ages with all types of disabilities.
"A number of years ago we decided, we recognized that children with disabilities have a difficult time navigating through Halloween. We wanted to provide a space that was accessible to kids with disabilities and have some fun, so we turned out office into a little community. Folks decorated and we invite folks in for Halloween," said CDR CEO Bruce Darling.
Last year, CDR had more than 4900 trick-or-treaters at the event.
