    Default Trunk or treat

    My daughter got home from kindergarden yesterday with a flyer from her teacher. Oct. 25th her school is doing a Trunk or Treat in the parking lot and want to know if any parents would be interested in participating. Uhh...HELL YEAH!!! Sounds like a good excuse to take out the hearse. Anyone else do the Trunk or Treat in your area?

    Tons of places around here to Trunk or Treating but I've never participated. Personally I don't care for it because it takes a big part of what I consider Halloween to be out of it (ToTing door to door). Love the "hearse" though. Did you make it yourself and is it a trailer you pull?

    Lots of the churches around here do it as a "safe alternative" to trick or treating. Not a fan, personally, for the above mentioned reason.

    Be careful Chili... there are people on this forum who have NO respect for other people and when you even mention Trunk-or-Treat, jump on you as if you're Hitler reincarnated. A fellow haunter (who had moved from a huge town of 400,000 to a tiny town of just 1000 got the go-ahead from the city to do a trunk-or-treat between school letting out and T.O.T. time) was excited, thrilled, and happy to share her good fortune with her fellow haunters, get some ideas, like you,only to find post after post of people who acted as if she'd pooped in their child's pumpkin bucket and called it Baby Ruth. It was rude and though that post is removed now, it still sits sour in my mind that people who can't say something nice somehow felt the need to harsh her buzz and knock her down when she was feeling happy.

    Suffice it to say that lots of folks don't dig the Trunk-or-Treat. I say 'do anything that makes Halloween a celebration'. Too many places are all but outlawing it, and if you can do something to make folks think Halloween is fun... by God do so!

    Ash- yes I did make the hearse and trailer. I took a couple of years off from doing a big build at home so I built the hearse to take the kids out on.

    I'm not a big fan of the Trunk or Treat myself either but we do it a little different here. My yacht club does it in the parking lot prior to trick or treat time. It gives everyone a chance to see each others costumes and mingle prior to heading out.

    I'm a harsh the buzz kinda guy when it comes to trunk or treats....however, in this case I don't have a problem with it as it's not trying to compete with Trick or Treating on Halloween...this one is more like a Halloween party since the days are different.

    Thanks Scatterbrains. Believe me, if it were on Holloween, neither myself nor my kids would be going. The one at school I mean.

    I'm cool with Harvest parties, mall walks, trunk or treats....all that stuff, unless your agenda is to have them on Halloween as a way to curtail door to door Trick or Treating.
