Trunk or Treats aims to provide a safe environment for trick-or-treaters on or around Halloween.

Trunk or Treats involve a community coming together in a parking lot, either on the 31st or shortly before, so that children can trick-or-treat out of the decorated trunks of their cars. Some places will also have games for kids, extra treats (besides candy), and some fun for the adults too. Find out where you can take your kids this year for safe trunk or treat fun.
