As a fun alternative to trick-or-treating and all the scary stuff, Saint Mary Magdalen celebrated Trunk-or-Treat. Trunk-or-Treat is like classic trick-or-treating where kids still dress up in costumes and ask for candy, but it was held in the church parking lot.
Cars opened their trunks or the backs or their vehicles and decorated them. Then parents pass out candy from their trunks. This provides a safe family environment for trick-or-treaters.
The 5th Grade parents organized this well attended event on a very chilly fall evening. Cars were decorated and the children went car to car to ask for a treat. The playground was transformed into a haunted house. There was a selfie station in the gym for the different characters to take photos of themselves. There was a costume contest for each of the grades and a family costume contest. A huge dinosaur made a visit to the event bringing WOW’s from the crowd. Many different characters were on site……super heroes, princesses, clowns, witches. The kids of all ages had a wonderful time at this fun family event.
