Five Tips for a “Frighteningly Fun” Trunk or Treat Event

Trick or Trunk

Don’t let those palm trees, mild temperatures, and ocean breezes fool you; the end of October is a spooky time of year in West Palm Beach, Lake Worth and the greater Miami area – as kids get ready to celebrate Halloween, Florida style.

Instead of traditional Trick or Treating, many parents are opting for a different kind of Halloween experience. It’s called “Trunk or Treat.”

What is a “Trunk or Treat?” It’s also been called “Halloween Tailgating.” Especially popular with churches, schools, and community groups, Trunk or Treating involves just what the name implies: Instead of dressing up and walking the neighborhood, kids can enjoy all of the fun of Halloween by visiting cleverly decorated vehicles gathered together in a school, church or community center parking lot.

Trunk or Treating has become increasingly popular because it’s a safe way for kids to experience all the excitement of Halloween goodie-gathering without the hassles of walking through neighborhoods in the dark. Parents also enjoy Trunk or Treating as much as the kids, dressing up in costumes and decorating their car trunks in a variety of imaginative ways.

Here are our top five tips for a frighteningly fun Trunk or Treat experience.

  1. Get into the spooky “spirit” of things with an inventive trunk decoration. A few fun theme ideas to consider include beach-time fun, NASCAR, fall pumpkin harvest, football and comic books.
  2. To get a prime spot, be sure to arrive in plenty of time.
  3. Kids, especially the little ones, should get plenty of rest the night before.
  4. Stick with “fun,” not “frightening.”
  5. Bring healthy snacks, treats and non-alcoholic beverages to share.

You’ll arrive at your neighborhood Trunk or Treat in style in your new or certified pre-owned Honda from your friends at here at Braman Honda.

Have a safe and fun-filled Halloween!
