Trunk or Treat at BRANNEL SCHOOL
Time: 5.30pm – 7pm
Location: Brannel School, Rectory Road, St Stephen, PL26 7RN
More Info: Facebook Event Page
Trunk or Treat brings Halloween to a safe car park where young children go from car to car and collect sweets. People decorate their car boot or ‘trunk’ and everyone dresses up for Halloween. The trick or treating can take place safely with young families together instead of knocking on doors.
This event is free, they ask that everyone arrives by 5.30pm so that the car park gate can be closed. People can then visit the decorated car trunks and collect sweets etc safely. Organising little challenges or games for the children to do whilst collecting your sweets is also a great way for everyone to have more fun on Halloween. All cars attending must be decorated and you need to let them know in advance that you’ll be bringing a decorated car – see the Facebook event link above for more info. There will be hot food and refreshments available to buy at the event.
