The Children’s Safety Village 8th Annual Trunk or Treat event will take place on Saturday, October 26, 2019, between 11:00am – 2:00pm.  This FREE event is billed as a safe alternative to traditional Trick-or-Treating during the Halloween festivities and is open to the community. While it isn’t required, children may dress up in costume. Community partners, businesses and organizations will decorate the trunks of their cars and distribute “treats” to the children along with important information on safety of goods/services to the adults attending. Signage will direct attendees to vehicles parked around the Village’s 8-acre gated property and families and children will be encouraged to “trunk or treat” to each vehicle.  Additionally, special games and activities will be offered on site.  All children must be accompanied by an adult. Visit Eventbrite.com for additional information.
