A family-centered event, it encourages active participation for children with various disabilities or limitations. Trick or Treat from car to car, trunk to trunk. Costumes encouraged. Bring your trick or treat bags.

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.
