Trunk – or – Treat’ event planned for Tri-Community

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

Have you signed up for a Trunk-or-Treat space for Halloween? Thought about what kind of treats to hand out or whether to dress up you and your vehicle for the event?

Planning continues for this great alternative to traditional door-to-door trick-or-treating. This new way of trick-or-treating is safer than walking the dark streets of San Manuel with lots of empty houses along the way. Everyone gathers in one place for costume parade, trunk-or-treat, food, a jumping castle, great music and lots of fun.

There’s still time to reserve your spot. While you don’t have to decorate your vehicle to park it and hand out treats, there is still time for that too; as well as yourself, lawn chair, lawn mower, broom or whatever else you rode in on. Just call 385-2337 ext. 1113 and leave your name and phone number, and the details will be given you by return call. There will be a prize for the best decorated space.

There is no charge for participation unless you are a “vendor for profit”; then there will be a $20 fee. This is a great chance for non-profit clubs to make some money. You must be able to supply your own electricity, if necessary.

The gates will open at 3:15 pm and you must have your vehicles parked by 4:30 pm. The event will start when the parade ends,at approximately 5:30 pm, and vehicles cannot leave the parking lot until 7:30 pm, for the safety of the children.

Mammoth-San Manuel Community Schools will be coordinating the Costume Parade uptown. The parade, led by the firetruck, will wind around the upper arcade and end up across McNab in front of the Community Schools Office, where the category costume prizes will be rewarded. The parade will begin lining up at 4 pm. You must be in the right category and follow the parade to the Community Schools Office in order to be judged.

Let’s make this a Halloween that the kids remember for the rest of their lives, or, at least until next year! And, kids – if you still want to go door-to-door asking for treats, please remember to bring your flashlight and head for houses that have porch lights on. Safety is like chocolate: you don’t want too little; but there’s no such thing as too much.
