Readers– a little twist to this year’s Trunk or Treat listing– it is going to be authored by YOU! There are so many Trunk or Treats this year, at church, school and even mall parking lots. With Halloween falling on Sunday, Oct. 31, 2010 this year…Halloween celebrations will be spread out over not one, but two weekends.
For the uninitiated, Trunk-Or-Treat is basically a fun, safe way to celebrate Halloween. It’s tons of fun, and seems to really be growing in favor judging by the increasing numbers of events being held. They can be enjoyed almost any evening between mid-October and Halloween itself.
A few tips for a successful night:
- It’s way more fun when you decorate your car!! Many organizations will even award prizes for the “best decorated car” and who wouldn’t want to win that honor?!?
- Take tons of candy! Our church is anticipating over 500 kids at its event. For the biggest bang for your candy buck–head to Sam’s Club or Costco and pick up a few of the enormous bags. Always buy more than you think you’ll need.
- Get there on time! Most groups “close” the event a few minutes after the announced start time. This is for obvious safety reasons–you can’t have little ones running wildly through the parking lot if cars are backing in and out.
Too many dates/times/locations for me to keep track of… please help us by leaving a comment at the end of this post and providing basic information for your favorite Trunk or Treat. Date/time/location would be most helpful. Hopefully, we’ll get a nice representation from all over the metro! THANK YOU! Have fun and be safe!
