Trail association to hail open of section of city trails

The Huntington Area Recreational Trail Association (HARTA) will host an event celebrating the opening of another section of city trails on Sunday, Sept. 28, at 2 p.m. at Elmwood Park.

The public is invited to walk all or part of this new one-mile stretch of community trail. This family oriented event is open to the community and though not required, walkers are encouraged to walk (or carry) their canine friends. Silly prizes will be awarded to participants and pups alike.

Popcorn treats will be available at the conclusion of the event and the HARTA board of directors will be selling T-shirts with all revenue designated toward the development of Huntington's trail system.

HARTA is a nonprofit group whose goal is to promote, fund and assist in the development of the community trail system. HARTA welcomes community support including charitable giving.
