What is Trunk or Treat? 

Trunk or Treat is a version of trick or treating, but instead of children and families going door to door to collect candy, they go from trunk to trunk. 

Trunk or treating is much like classic trick or treating where kids still dress up in costume and ask for candy. However, with trunk or treating, issues with walking from house to house or encountering a stranger are diminished because the event is held in a parking lot with parents and guardians present.

Below are ideas from other Trunk or Treats around the world!
**Please note these are examples to show the event.
​Pre-registration is required, however registration is Free!
