Car after car, each kid stops to collect candy to fill their bags. The excitement of sugar and sweets fill their eyes. Trunk-n-Treat has finally taken place, giving young children an early Halloween treat.

Trunk-n-Treat is usually held at the Koziel Complex, which is the area between Parnell Elementary and the old Northwest Elementary school. Cars, school buses, and semi trucks all line up, decorated with spooky Halloween items, to hand out candy as the children walk by.

This is a time for the kids to take out their new costumes and have a lot of fun before the big day. Whether they are scary or cute, they all receive candy.

After walking through the long line of cars, families were able to pick up free food and drinks brought by school boosters, including the band boosters, who gave away free hotdogs.

In the middle of all the trunks and food, hay bales were set up for seating. Music was being played for the kids to dance to and wear off the sugar rush they had gained from all the candy that was given out.

Students and teachers also were able to join the fun and volunteer a trunk of their own to hand out candy to the children.

Trunk-n-Treat is a great time for different families from the schools to interact and come together as a community.
