Trunk or Treating fun for the kids – Saturday, October 25, 2014

Trunk or Treat 2014

Saturday October 25th

4:00pm –6:00pm @ The Wheat Ridge 5-8 Parking Lot
7101 W 38th Avenue, Wheat Ridge Co

Trunk or Treat is back again in 2014 to bring a fun and safe Halloween event for children of Wheat Ridge and beyond! This event is a safe trick or treating zone where volunteers decorate the trunks of their cars for children to “trick or treat” at them. How elaborate the cars are, depends on the volunteers, but there is a contest for the best trunk (and participants are the voters who decide!).

Last year over 1,000 people came to this event, and this year we expect even more! This event has participation from firefighters, police officers, and local community to make it a safe, fun event for everyone! It will also feature food vendors, a haunted house, “Trunk Decorating Contest”, games for the kids and “Thriller” zombie dancers to kick off the costume parade at 4:00pm!
