Community Trunk or Treat ~ October 25 Print E-mail

The third annual community Trunk or Treat is set for Friday, October 25 from 6:30-8:30 p.m.  This family friendly event will take place in the Pendleton Co. Athletic Park. Come enjoy an evening of candy, costumes and community as you make your way through a collection of decorated car trunks and truck beds.

Why is this a great event?  It's a safe well-lit environment with plenty of parking for families with children from infants to pre-teens. Simply utilize the parking lots at each end of the park (avoid walking across U.S. 27 for safety reasons) and begin trick or treating at the end of the park nearest McDonald's.

Trunk or Treat would love to have your church, club, team, business or organization join the fun. Simply bring your trunk and lots of treats. What adds to the fun is to decorate or "theme out" your trunk or truck bed.  Be sure to be in the park and decorated by no later than 6:15 p.m. The kids love the themes almost as much as the candy! Some ideas are farmers, construction work, princesses, cartoon characters, storybook characters, Disney, fall décor, tractors, sports, Star Wars (or any movie theme), Candy Land, NASCAR, the possibilities are endless. Just use what you have and have fun! Plan to keep your vehicle in place until 8:30 p.m. when the evening concludes for everyone's safety.
