10/29/2016 - Trunk-or-Treat, City of Kittitas

Wed, 2016-10-26 20:00

The City of Kittitas will host the trunk-or-treat on Saturday October 29th between 3 and 5 pm in the parking spaces outside City Hall and down the street toward the Time Out Saloon.  We hope to have have both sides of the street filled with cars. Our goal is to have the street lined with Trunk-or-Treats vehicles for three blocks. We are looking for approximately 30 to 60 cars to participate and make this a real destination event that will attract other communities. The Children can also trick-or-treat the local businesses. Everyone will vote for the top 3 cars who’ll get the claim to fame recognition.

What is Trunk or Treat?

Trunk-or-treating is a version of trick-or-treating, but instead of children going door to door to collect candy, they go from trunk to trunk of cars that are parked down the street with highly decorated festive trunks to attract kiddos. Some communities have adopted TRUNK-or-treating in place of traditional TRICK-or-treating on Halloween. Trunk-or-treating is much like classic trick-or-treating where kids still dress up in costume and ask for candy. However, with trunk-or-treating, issues with walking from house to house or encountering a stranger are diminished because the event is held in a safe place such with parents and guardians present.
