Bring your car and your kids to Hollow Park on Halloween night for an exciting evening of trick or treating on Wednesday, October 31st!!! 


 


Park your car, open your DECORATED trunk, sit out on your lawn chairs and watch your child trick or treat from car to car while you hand out candy to all of the trick or treaters!


 


Doors open at 5:00 for those cars decorating their trunks (no cars can leave the area until 7:30pm).  Doors open at 6pm for those coming just for Trick or Treating!  Trunks will close at 7:30pm!


 


Admission: No fee, but we ask that each car bring a non-perishable food item for the Food Bank.  Cub Pack 54 will be collecting these items at the gate.  Also, if you would like to, 1 carved jack-o-lantern and this will be entered it into the competition and put it on display!


No Registration Required

There will be prizes for:



  • Best decorated trunk

  • Best decorated jack-o-lantern!


Please do not come in multiple cars, try to keep to one car per family as we do not want parking to become an issue.  If you are not decorating your trunk but would like to bring a bag of candy to contribute to all the cars that are, that would be very helpful.

No walk-ins! All children must be accompanied by an adult. All adults must be accompanied by their child(ren).   No alcohol please.

Hallowe'en was once a community event. Older folks enjoyed welcoming the neighbor children in for treats. But Trick-or-Trunk this year is restricted to parents who drive in with their children. Are we really so terrified of "stranger danger" that our neighbors whose children have grown up won't be allowed in the park to see the little ones in their costumes? Grandparents won't be permitted to open their trunk for the neighbor children, just as they once opened their door? It seems a shame to prohibit older people, and those who haven't started a family yet, from participating in the old New England Hallowe'en traditions. According to the website where information about the event is posted, no cars will be allowed to enter OR LEAVE the park between 6 and 7:30 PM. Trick-or-treaters who arrive on foot, even with their parents, will not be allowed to participate or enter the park. I understand the need to protect children, but are we carrying caution just a bit too far?
