NEWTON — The annual Newton Trunk or Treat event, sponsored by the Newton Recreation Commission, will be held on Sat., October 23, from 4:30-6:30 p.m. This event is fun for everyone – those dressed in costumes visiting each trunk and those who creatively decorate their vehicles. There will be food and music, too.
Participation is free. Local families, businesses and groups are asked to provide a vehicle trunk/tailgate/truck bed decorated in a family friendly Halloween theme, along with someone to pass out candy at your trunk. Individually wrapped candy, prizes, trinkets and business goodies are acceptable items.
Costumes are encouraged. Dress up in coordination with your trunk’s theme. A contest will be held for the Best Overall, Scariest, Funniest, and Most Original trunks.
Trick or treaters are encouraged to be dressed in costumes to visit the trunks for treats. Prizes will be awarded for The Best Overall, Scariest, Funniest, and Most Original costumes.
Registered vehicles may arrive at the parking lot behind Memorial School, 31 West Main Street, beginning at 2:30 p.m. All trunks should be ready to go by 4:15 p.m. For safety purposes, participating vehicles will not be allowed to leave the Trunk or Treat area until the event is over.
Vehicles may register at firstname.lastname@example.org. Send your individual name or business group, mailing address (street, city, state, zip code), phone number, email, and license plate numbers.
