Trunk-or-Treating Is A Hit At Washington Elementary

Trunk-or-treating — which has also been called “Halloween tailgating” — takes much of the stress out of trick-or-treating because it takes place in the safety of a supervised parking lot.

Last Friday, the Washington Elementary School PTA hosted an after-school trunk-or-treating event that drew a large group of costumed kids and happy parents.

The PTA bought and divided candy and toys, and and provided decorations. Some teachers used these decorations while others brought their own, with some even creating a theme such as Minions or Sesame Street.

Adults then stored candy in the open trunk of the cars, handing it out when children approached.

“It was a wonderful event for the Washington community,” Principal Jim Collin said.
