Kids today just never realize that they are truly living the sweet life. Why should our precious little kiddos have to trek from home to home trick-or-treating on Halloween? The idea of trunk-or-treat festivities at fall festivals, school activities, and other community events offers families a safe alternative to the trick-or-treating experience. Living in a rural area, where my kids keenly observed as soon as we moved here during the month of July, there is logistically no way trick-or-treating is happening in our neighborhood. Our homes are distanced to far apart to allow door-to-door visits from creatively costumed astronauts, bumblebees, or lifeless zombies. We soon came to know that the creative fun of trunk-or-treat ideas are the ultimate family-friendly tailgate party.

A few words of advice from those in the know- plan a day time event or secure a well-lit parking lot, allow time for set-up before the trunk-or-treat event begins, remember access to restrooms, leave ample space between vehicles to prevent crowding, and provide trash cans for all of those candy wrappers. Consider organizing or participating in a trunk-or-treat event within your neighborhood as a festive family tradition. Get creative and most importantly, have fun!
