Trunk-or-Treating Tips

Trunk-or-Treating | Fort Wayne, IN

Halloween is approaching, which means you’re going to see a whole host of little ghouls and goblins making their way to your door for candy. However, the practice of door-to-door trick-or-treating is moving to the wayside in favor of a new tradition: trunk-or-treating. If you’re participating in the automotive spin on the traditional Halloween celebration, keep these trunk-or-treating tips in mind.

Contact an organization that hosts a trunk-or-treat event

Trunk-or-treating events are usually held by local organizations, such as churches or schools. If you’d like to participate in one of these events, or wish to take your little ones to receive candy, be sure to reach out to one of these organizations for information.

Consider decorating your vehicle’s trunk

Trunk-or-treating provides you with an opportunity to create a festive display in your vehicle. If you’re feeling really creative, you can decorate your car to match your costume, such as tricking out your trunk as a cauldron if you’re a witch or as a coffin if you’re a vampire.

Pass out something besides candy

Just as with trick-or-treating, you don’t want to overload kids with too much sugar. Consider alternatives to unhealthy candy, such as granola bars or small toys and trinkets for trunk-or-treaters to enjoy.
