Trunk or Treat is a new spin on Trick or Treating where local businesses and organizations bring a vehicle, decorate its trunk/tailgate and pass out candy as kids “Trunk or Treat” from car to car.  Trunk or treating allows kids to have all the trick or treating fun without crossing streets or worrying about traffic.  It’s also a great accessibility benefit for those individuals with various disabilities or limitations.

We would like to extend the opportunity to you and your business to participate in this fun event!
