What is Trunk or Treat?
Decorate the trunks of your cars and head to the nearest trunk or treating-event. Cars will park throughout parking lots & other open areas so kids can visit each “trunk” for some yummy candy treats.
Trunk-or-treating is a great way for the community and/or local businesses to bring families together beyond neighborhood trick-or-treating. Decorate your car
with themed or slightly spooky trunks filled with candy!
Plus, you won’t have to spend all night or walk far distances to get it, which is great for the littles!
If you bring your furry family too, be sure to think about pet safety on Halloween
