It's the time of year when our church has Halloween events and one of our kids' favorites is the annual Trunk or Treat. Basically everyone meets at the church and parks their cars in such a manner that all of the vehicles' trunks face towards each other in a big circle.
Then we trick out the trunk space of our cars with Halloween decorations. As the event begins, we hang out in or near our trunks as all the children do the traditional trick or treating by going car to car and saying "Trunk or Treat!"
We hand out candy treats until our cache runs dry and the event ends.
This year we had an indoor festival of sorts inside the church prior to the outdoor event. There was a cake walk, photo booths, craft tables, bean bag toss, and face painting. I stood by with pride as I watched my three older girls take command of the face painting table.
It was an enjoyable evening with an opportunity to mingle with like-minded neighbors and the whole family had a great time.
