Trunk-or-Treating Events

Becoming more and more popular each year, trunk-or-treating events are large tail-gate-like parties the whole family can enjoy. Most frequently, these events are organized by various community and church groups, and take place in their associated parking lot. Families are encouraged to decorate their car trunk or truck tail-gate and pass out candy to the kids. This provides a safe alternative to traditional trick-or-treating and allows the adults to socialize with one another. Be sure to check with your local church or community center to see if they're hosting a trunk-or-treating event or Halloween party this year!

Regardless of how you plan on spending All Hallow’s Eve this year, be sure to check out at least one of these family-friendly Halloween events in Greenville, SC. Have a safe and happy Halloween, everyone!
