October, 2014 – Trunk or Treat


Trunk or Treat Event a Safe Alternative to Trick or Treating 

Halloween is arriving a few days early in the Village of Wellington! Join us on Saturday, October 25th from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. for our free Trunk or Treat event in the student parking lot at Wellington Community High School located at 2101 Greenview Shores Boulevard. Returning for the sixth year in a row, Trunk or Treat is a safe, family-friendly twist on trick or treating where volunteers decorate their vehicles and distribute Halloween treats out of their trunks. Children ages 10 and under are invited to trick or treat from vehicle to vehicle. Families can also enjoy music, refreshments, a bounce house, craft tables, food trucks and more. There will also be a costume contest for children and a trunk decoration contest with gift cards for the winners.

If you’re interested in decorating your car and passing out candy, contact Meridith Tuckwood, Community Services Specialist, at (561) 753-2476 or by email at mtuckwood@wellingtonfl.gov. This is a great volunteer opportunity for families, and high school students who drive are also encouraged to participate.

Trunk or Treat is made possible through Wellington’s partnership with Wellington Community High School’s DECA program, Wellington InterFaith, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, Palm Beach County Fire Rescue, and Walgreens.
