One of the best parts about Halloween is obviously the candy, but the Boilermaker is offering an additional event that promotes a healthier side to the holiday. The Utica BOOlermaker is taking place on October 24th at the Masonic Care Community on Bleecker St. in Utica.

For just $6 your child will get to participate in a fun running event. They will also receive a very nice Boolermaker cinch bag to use for trick or treating on Halloween night and that bag will be filled with healthy treats! As long as the weather is nice, there will also be a huge leaf pile for kids to jump in. It's going to be a great day and it's being put on by an awesome organization. Hope you join in the fun!

To register your kids for this event, please visit the Boilermaker website. The first run kicks off at 10:15, but gates open at 8:30 a.m. for the expo. Registration ends October 18th, 2015 at 11:59pm EDT.
