What is Trunk or Treat?
A great time for children to wear costumes, meet new friends, check out some “terrific trunks”, and collect candy, of course! Candy will be handed out from 4:30-5:30pm. We will then have food and other activities for everyone, including farm animals, games, crafts, rock climbing wall, etc. After the trunks close at 5:30pm, activities will continue until 7:30pm.
Invite your family, friends, and neighbors to come and enjoy, as we celebrate fall together!
Bring your TRUNK! Drive in, park your vehicle, open your trunk, and spread happy smiles as you hand out candy to 500+ children and greet their families. If you’re feeling creative, show us! Decorate your trunk with family-friendly decor (nothing scary, please)! (Trunks line-up and set up at 3:45pm. Trunk-or-Treat candy distribution is 4:30-5:30pm.)
Allergy-Friendly Trunks - We are asking if Trunk Hosts will consider providing an Allergy-Friendly or "Teal Pumpkin" option for our Guests. This is certainly not mandatory, but we would like to consider our friends with allergy concerns. Sometimes people provide 2 different buckets and sometimes they offer only an allergy free option (a non-food treat or food without common allergens). On the sign up there are slots for dedicated Allergy-Friendly Trunks, but ANYONE can provide the option of both.
VOLUNTEER! You can help us share the love of Jesus with the children by playing games, serving food, supervising an inflatable, or making crafts with children. Choose the area where you would like to help – Games, Crafts, Activities, Food Prep, Food Serving, Set-up, Clean-up, Registration, or Parking Lot!
Helping out will make you smile (we’ll smile, too)! If you have questions or other places you'd like to volunteer, contact us (information below).
We ask those providing trunks to provide their own candy, but sometimes people run out with the hundreds of children coming through! Please let us know if you can donate candy to supplement the candy supply!
If you would like to provide an Allergy Friendly option, we happily welcome those also! Please label allergy / peanut free donations so we are made aware. Trinkets, pencils, etc. are a good option instead of candy too.
Thrivent Action Team to share?
If you have been waiting for an outreach opportunity for your Thrivent Action team grant, look no further! We'd love to work with you! Trunk-or-Treat is a huge opportunity to open our campus up to the community for sharing Jesus' love and having fun. Please remember that because Thrivent cannot tell us who you are, we need you to contact us. Thank you for your partnership!
RSVP For the Fun:
Participate! Let us know your family is coming. Our party planners need to make sure we have enough food, candy, games, and crafts! *PLEASE BRING A PUMPKIN TO DECORATE.*
