Some parents won’t be taking their wee ghouls and ghosts out this Halloween, and who can blame them? Come to the TGCA Pumpkin Walk and give them a fun alternative – Trunk-or-Treat!

We’re looking for Halloween enthusiasts who’d like to get creative for a couple of hours on Halloween day for the benefit of a bunch of great kids!

The idea behind Truck-or-Treat is so fun and simple-it’s frightening!

  • Register to display in the Pumpkin Walk for Trunk-or-Treat,
  • Choose a costume or party theme for your trunk and come up with a fun way to decorate your open trunk, wear a costume if you’ve got one,
  • Come to the TGCA on Halloween day at 11:30 am and get situated,
  • Bring around 80 prepackaged treats and tongs or a candy chute to hand out to the trick-or-trunkers before they go to the judging station with their jack-o-lanterns,
  • Enjoy the spooky spirit of the season, all the wee costumes, and make Halloween really special for a bunch of lucky local kids!

If you’ve got a vehicle, some spooky decorations, and a few hours to spare on Halloween day, the kids will be thrilled to see you and your display – and the candy, of course, don’t forget about the candy!!

Who: Any person with the spirit of Halloween in their heart. One person per vehicle, please.

When: Saturday, October 31 – 11:30 am until 2:30 pm.

Where: The east parking lot of the TGCA. Enter from the North, follow the signs.

Why: Because we can still make Halloween more fun and less scary this year!

  • Register for this event for capacity and contact tracing purposes,
