My kids and I love the Trunk or Treat event held each year at our church and are sorely to be missing it AND the one at their school due to an out-of-town soccer tournament this year. What is Trunk or Treat you ask? Basically it is walking around the decorated cars in a specific location to collect candy.
The decorated cars can get crazy too. Families tend to come to compete for who has the most awesome display. For the kids of course it is all about the candy. Don't have a Trunk or Treat event at your school? The Ann Arbor Jaycees has a great family-friendly Trunk or Treat event October 25, 3:00-5:00 p.m. at Carpenter Elementary (4250 Central Blvd, Ann Arbor).
Join other Ann Arbor families for this safe alternative to trick-or-treating that gives kids the chance to dress up and play without going door-to-door. Participating car trunks are decorated in Halloween themes by parents, families and community members, who will be handing out candy.
This is a free event open to the public. Parking spaces for decorated cars is limited though, so be sure reserve your Trunk or Treat spot by October 20, 2014.
