What is Trunk or Treat?

Only the best thing ever. 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 trick-or-treat from car to car.

These Halloween events bring communities together beyond your normal neighborhood celebrations. Plus, you can cover a lot more ground quicker. …kids can’t walk that far. Even when candy is involved.

If you bring your furry family trunk or treating too, be sure to think about pet safety on Halloween!
