What Is Trunk or Treat?

Trick or Treaters in Costume, Fort Meade, FL

Halloween is just around the corner, and the ghouls and goblins are ready to prowl the neighborhood for their yearly candy. Don’t have time to decorate the house or go door to door all night? Try trunk-or-treat, the nationwide trend that makes trick-or-treating easier.

How it works

Parents and organizers band together and pick a spot for everyone to park their cars. These locations include churches and schools, so check out your local social media listing for information. This year, Fort Meade First United Church is hosting a Trunk or Treat in its parking lot on October 29.

After picking the perfect spot, parents decorate their open trunks in elaborate ways. Don’t be afraid to get creative with DIY projects that can turn your Chevy SUV into a haunted mansion. A popular project is to cut spiky teeth out of cardboard and adhere them to the top and bottom of your trunk. When kids reach in to get some candy, it’ll look like they’re reaching into a monster’s mouth.

When night falls, superheroes and princesses can grab their pillowcases and run from car to car to get a treat. They’ll be delighted to find the parking lot turned into a candy utopia.

Trunk-or-treating is a fun way to get the neighborhood together without getting too tired early in the night. Find the perfect Chevy to impress trunk-or-treaters at Greenwood Chevrolet in Fort Meade, Florida!
