Trunk or Treat is a different spin on trick-or-treating. It’s meant to be safe and fun, it’s suitable for suburban areas that aren’t so walkable, and it eliminates concerns about traffic or crossing streets in the dark.
The idea is that local businesses, organizations, and community members hand out treats from a parked car with a decorated trunk. Kids can “trunk or treat” from car to car to get goodies.
The Lawrenceville Boo Fest is a trunk-or-treat event on Friday, October 25th, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. It is FREE to attend.
It takes place at the Lawrenceville Lawn, a park that is located in downtown Lawrenceville at 210 Luckie Street.
If you’d like to enter a car in the Trunk-or-Treat, you must fill out an application.
You’re responsible for providing a car or truck decorated with a Halloween theme, and an attendant who can pass out candy to 300 kids.
A contest will be held for the BEST DRESSED CAR. A winner will be announced at 7:30 p.m.
The event will include a DJ with interactive games for the kids.
At 8 p.m., a special showing of the Disney film Hocus Pocus will take place on Luckie Street on the giant screen.
