Trunk or Treat

Halloween is such a fun time of year for kids and adults alike.  Carving pumpkins, haunted houses, scary costumes and trick or treating and just some of the fun activities that can be had during this spooky season.

Trick or treating is one of my favorite activities and finding a good neighborhood on Cape Cod can sometimes be hard. With so many second homes it can be difficult to find a neighborhood full of year round residents that are also interested in stocking candy to hand out to families.

In the past several years a new way to trick or treat has come about called Trunk or Treat. The purpose of Trunk or Treat is to give families a safe, secure and fun environment to trick or treat. Locals decorate their vehicles and hand out candy in one predetermined location. These events are usually hosted by churches, schools, fire departments and police departments.

We have been apart of the Wellfleet Trunk or Treat Festival for over 10 years and we have such a great time every year that we keep going back. Not only do we trick or treat with our kids but we also participate by decorating out trunk and handing out candy to all of the kiddos.

Trunk or Treat events are held on and around Halloween. Check with each organization for date and time details.
