We all know trick-or-treat, but have you heard of trunk-or-treat?

A twist on the Halloween tradition, Trunk Or Treat is geared toward families with very small children, the neurodivergent community, the elderly, or anyone who would rather get their candy in a one-stop shop.

Rather than going door to door in swanky neighbourhoods that have entire haunted house displays, the trunk-or-treat option allows folks to decorate their cars, fill their trunks with candy, find a location to park, and encourages patrons to help themselves.

The Optimist Club of Oshawa is holding its 2nd annual Trunk Or Treat Saturday October 28 from noon to 3 p.m. at 475 Salisbury Street in the city’s west end.

The event is free but space is limited to 300 kids.

Organizers, who will be trying their best to ensure the treats are nut-free, will be reserving tickets for 200 children with the other 100 tickets set aside for special needs and walk ins. If you want to be sure your child gets to participate make sure you register, a simple process that will not only guarantee your child will be able to trick or treat and have fun, but also choose the best time to visit.

If you think your trick or treaters would enjoy the experience more with less people and no music here will be a special needs/accessibility time at 11:30 a.m. Register by emailing [email protected].

Come enjoy the decorated cars, activities and fun. Oshawa Fire just might be on hand with a fire truck again.

The event is rain or shine so dress up for the weather.

If you would like to participate by decorating your trunk and handing out treats, please contact [email protected] for more information.
