Trunk or Treat

We hope you, your family and your neighbors will join us for a fun evening on Saturday, October 26 at Trunk or Treat!

Trunk or Treat is our annual Halloween event for the community. People gather and park their cars in our parking lot, open their trunks, or the backs of their vehicles, and decorate them. Then they pass out candy from their trunks. The event provides a safe family environment for trick or treaters.

The best way to plan your trunk is to pick a theme. Think of it like dressing yourself in a costume. Sometimes you pick a theme and throw things together.

You can be Mother Goose and have a few little settings around the trunk representing different nursery rhymes.

You can dress as a clown and fill your trunk with balloons.

Or be a zookeeper with lots of stuffed animals set about.

Or act like your trunk is the back of a boat. Then have fishing poles for hooking the candy.

Other ideas:
Beach or Luau theme. Open up the back of the vehicle, hang some towels and set up a boogie board against the door, set out beach chairs, use an umbrella.
NASCAR Theme – Display all your souvenirs
Harvest Theme
Sports Theme (pick a sport) – Team displays are popular
Popular Kid’s Themes: Sesame Street, Dora the Explorer, Veggie Tales, Backyardigans
Animal Themes – Stuffed animals count.
Movie Themes (Keep the kids in mind though)
Western Theme
Camping Out theme
Christmas (or other holiday) Theme
Gone Fishing Theme
Pirate Theme

Don’t forget about a costume for yourself. The best and most interesting trunks have their owners dressed to match the theme.

Please no scary themes – this event is geared toward children and we have young children who can get very scared of too “Halloweeny” themes.
