Trunk or Treat 2018

FAMILIES AND CHILDREN ARE INVITED TO COME IN COSTUME TO VISIT OUR "TRUNKS" AND RECEIVE A "TREAT" FROM 6 TO 8:30 PM ON FRIDAY, OCT. 26, 2018, AT THE OLA PARKING LOT. EVENT IS FREE! 

Rules and Guidelines for "Trunk" Participants, Volunteers, Donors

Thank you for your interest in our first Trunk or Treat event! There is no cost to enter but you must be prepared to hand out candy/prizes to Trunk or Treaters. This is a traditional event where families, organizations or groups decorate their vehicles with a Halloween theme and pass out goodies to the children who attend in a safe family-friendly environment. This is our first year hosting the event, so we are not sure how many children to expect, but would encourage you to plan for 200 pieces of candy, to be safe. We hope to make this an annual tradition and thank you for coming out to support our inaugural event!
