Are you looking for Trick-or-Treat (or Trunk-or-Treat) events in the greater Atlanta area? Here are a bunch of them, starting around October 20th and running all through Halloween night.
If you’d rather bring your kids to an organized event, rather than going door to door, these are great options. They take place at churches, schools, shopping malls, and more.
Trunk-or-Treat events take place in parks and community center parking lots. This 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 with Trunk-or-Treat 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.
At these events, there is often more than just candy gathering. Some are part of festivals or Halloween parties, so you might find entertainment, costume contests and parades, or free outdoor movies.
Most of these events are free, but some are not — like those associated with a festival that has an admission feee — so make sure to check.
NOTE: That some events require pre-registration. These are clearly noted, so please register early because most will fill up.
