All the Local 2020 Halloween Trunk-or-Treat and Drive-Through Events

Trunk-or-treat events are one of our favorite Halloween traditions! With little legs, our family can enjoy the fun of trick-or-treating without the worry of tiring too quickly. New this year, some organizations have decided to turn their events into a drive-through experience. Stay in the comfort and warmth of your car as you cruise through a parking lot full of decorated trunks. Extend the fun by decorating your car and passing out treats to guests.
