A New Halloween Tradition: Trunk or Treat

Trunk or Treat
Trunk or Treat this year!

Halloween is right around the corner, which means it’s the perfect time to decorate for trunk or treat. That’s not a typo—trunk or treat is a growing tradition for many car lovers who are looking to decorate their vehicles. While some prefer spooky setups, others are going for pure creativity. Read on to learn more about trunk or treat.

According to Buzzfeed, one of the main ideas behind trunk or treat is to organize an event that keeps kids safe while also cutting down on walking. Many people meet in one parking lot, and kids go from car to car to collect candy. This idea is especially popular at schools and churches, as well as areas where houses are far apart or in bad neighborhoods.

If you do choose to do the trunk-or-treat event, just be sure to follow some basic rules. Gathering in a public parking lot is usually acceptable, but you may want to ask permission before using a private lot. Because you’re out in the open, you should also try to make sure that all the decorations are kid-friendly. Also, make sure not to drive with decorations on your car. This can lead to unintentional littering as well as poor visibility.

Above all else, have fun! Halloween is the perfect time to decorate your car and get in the holiday spirit. We can’t wait to see what local residents comes up with.
