)-- Van Dyk Health Care hosts the 8th Annual “Moonlight Trail tonight from 7pm to 9:30pm. The Moonlight Trail, located at 42 North Mountain Avenue, is the largest and most festive family friendly attraction in the area.
“It’s truly incredible to witness the turnout at The Moonlight Trail,” said Jackie Cousins, Administrator at Van Dyk Healthcare in Montclair which provides post-acute care, physical rehabilitation and long-term care services. “It’s a testament to the families in our community who help us raise funds and awareness for those in need. And we have a great deal of fun.”
The Van Dyk Health Care staff takes an active role each year in organizing the Moonlight Trail event, which features over 2,000 pumpkins and hundreds of creative Halloween displays throughout the property. Joining the Van Dyk team to set up this year’s event, which takes over a month of on-site preparation, will be students from Montclair University as they prepare to welcome a record turnout of guests.
“Putting this event together is the half the fun,” Cousins said. “The fact that our entire community eagerly awaits and supports this spectacle motivates us to plan every detail with great precision. Our staff loves to be part of this event, and it brings us closer to every family who joins us at Moonlight Trail.”
Returning as this year’s entertainment for the third consecutive year will be DJ Cruz, who will be spinning the hauntingly familiar tunes of the 80’s, 90’s and beyond.
This event benefits Toni’s Kitchen and the Human Needs Food Pantry in Montclair. Toni’s Kitchen, with over 350 active volunteers, provides nutritious meals, case management full-service medical clinics, mental health services, therapeutic art workshops and education services throughout the community.
