(If you’re new to the area, Trunk or Treats are popular here! People decorate their trunk / back of their car in a certain theme, kids meander through the line of cars and stop to “Trunk” or Treat at each one, ending up with a basket of candy just like Trick or Treating. These are safe alternatives to Halloween if you need one, and many of them are held on a night prior to October 31 so you can enjoy Trunk or Treating AND traditional Halloween)

Please check directly with event organizers or local businesses for advance registration and any last-minute changes. While we do our best to provide accurate information, we include an outside link so you can verify the details for all events and activities.
