What is “Trunk or Treat?”

A “Trunk or Treat” is a church-sponsored Halloween event. People gather and park their cars on the street or in the parking lot. They open their trunks, or the backs of their vehicles, and decorate them. Then they pass out candy from their trunks. The event provides a safe family environment for trick or treaters, the children of our church and community.

I am not a member of Trinity, can my family and I still come to “Trunk or Treat?”

Yes!  This event is for our community.  All of Carson Valley and beyond are welcome to enjoy in the festivities of “Trunk or Treat!”

How much is it to get in?

It is FREE!  It doesn’t cost the children and families anything to participate in the festivities.  Come and enjoy!

Will there be food at the event?

Yes, there will be a FREE hotdog dinner.

How should I decorate my vehicle?

When it comes to decorating your vehicle there are the more traditional choices, like decorating for Halloween and using pumpkins…

NOTE: Our trick or treaters are generally toddlers and preschoolers.  So, please DO NOT use any scary items, like blood, bats, witches, spiders, monsters, gore, etc.

However, there are many ways to decorate your trunk!  The best way to plan your trunk is to pick a theme. Think of it like dressing yourself in a costume. Sometimes you pick a theme and throw things together. Some great ideas can be found on the Vehicle Decorating Ideas page.

Are there other ways to volunteer aside from decorating a vehicle?

Yes!  We need people for all sorts of tasks to prepare for the event and for the day of the event.  Please contact Holly (775.782.8153) to see where God can use you for this great outreach event.

Where can I bring candy to donate?

Please bring candy to the church office during office hours (8-5 p.m.; Monday-Friday).  A box is also set-up in the church for candy donations during church services.

I am not a member of Trinity, can I still volunteer to decorate my vehicle or help in another way?

Yes, you can.  We will ask you to adhere to the guidelines we have set to ensure a safe family environment.  We would love to have community members volunteer, after all this is an event that is open to the entire community!  Contact Holly.
