Halloween is right around the corner. Any Halloween fan who owns a pickup truck or car knows that, with a little imagination and willingness to let your creativity fly, a Halloween Trunk or Treat is an awesome way to celebrate!
The usual trick-or-treating is always a fun time with the little ones, but if you’re tired of hiking around several miles in the bitter cold just to get your kids some Snickers and cheap suckers, you might consider a Trunk or Treat instead.
You may have heard about a “Trunk or Treat” and wondered what it is. This activity is a safe and fun alternative (or addition) to the traditional trick or treat for Halloween. Think of Trunk or Treat as a Halloween tailgate party.
Instead of kids going door-to-door to get candy, they walk through a parking lot and go trunk-to-trunk. The trunk of your car or the bed of your truck becomes your front porch!
These events are usually hosted by groups, such as a church or school, but can be community organized as well.
What makes a Trunk or Treat appealing to parents, especially with young children?
- Parents often feel it’s safer than going door-to-door
- You avoid many of the scarier costumes and decorations
- It’s easier on the littlest children as they don’t have to walk as far.
Participants will usually decorate their trunks or truck beds with Halloween décor and some will even create games or activities where the kids can win prizes in addition to candy, of course. Check local community calendars or talk to friends and neighbors to find a trunk or treat event near you.
