Young trunks or caterers and their families are invited to dress up
BREVARD COUNTY • SUNTREE, FLORIDA – Little princesses and superheroes, pirates and dinosaurs will be out when Suntree United Methodist Church in Suntree holds its annual Trunk or Treat event on Saturday, October 23 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Young trunks or caregivers and their families are invited to dress up and tour each decorated vehicle along a designated path on the church grounds at 7400 N. Wickham Road in North Melbourne.
In addition to the not-too-scary fun, there will be an open-top bouncy house and inflatable slide, spike ball, corn toss and 4-meter Connect games.
In addition, two balloon artists will walk the grounds, creating balloon creations for children. A variety of specialty food trucks will be on-site for families looking to purchase dinner or additional treats.
Over 1,000 participants are expected to walk through and collect free candy. Prizes will be awarded for the best and most creative trunk displays.
After offering a drive-thru version of Trunk or Treat in 2020, the community-minded church is reverting to the traditional “walkable” format, which still offers plenty of room for social distancing.
Reverend Allee Willcox, Associate Pastor of Suntree United Methodist Church, is happy to recommend the annual Trunk or Treat event as a safe, family-friendly way for children and parents to enjoy the annual fall tradition.
“Trunk or Treat is a great opportunity to meet members of our community and see the amazing exhibits from our creative volunteers,” said Reverend Willcox.
“This event has been the centerpiece of our fall family ministries for a very long time, and we are all delighted to see it come back in full force this year. Kids love it! ”
Over the past two decades, “Trunk or Treat” has become a popular alternative to the neighborhood trick or treat traditionally associated with Halloween in America.
Participants park their cars side by side in a designated area and open their decorated trunks to hand out candy at a costumed children’s parade.
