Trunk or Treat!

5 pm - 7 pm

At Vose Library Parking Lot

Simply stated, this is a trick or treat event in one location. We need volunteers to decorate their cars (not too scary, please!) and hand out goodies. If you have ever wished you got a few trick or treaters and/or miss seeing children enjoying the holiday, we promise that you’ll have a great time. We will be giving a People’s Choice award to the vehicle with the most votes. We have 20 parking places left, so please sign up your vehicle no later than Wednesday, October 25. Decorating a car could make a great family or group project! If you cannot participate with a decorated vehicle there is still a way you can help. Last year there were over 200 participants, which means a LOT of candy was given out. We gratefully accept donations of candy to replenish the cars if they run out. Don’t have children? So what…. come down and watch the little ones in their costumes, have a sip of cider and share the fun with us! Cider and snacks will be served at the Library during the event.
