Prairie Ridge needs help with Trunk-or-Treat Halloween evening

The community event needs volunteers to provide car trunks.

The Prairie Ridge Community Coalition needs help putting on a trunk-or-treat event for kids this Halloween, and you might be able to help.

“Trunk-or-treating” is a modern variation on the typical Halloween festivities where kids go from parked car to parked car in a local parking lot, collecting candy from each car’s trunk. It can be seen as a safer and easier alternative to traversing neighborhoods in the dark.

The coalition is hosting such an event but needs a few more people willing to hand out candy from their trunk for the evening, which is on Oct. 31 at the Prairie Ridge Rec Hall from 5 to 7 p.m.

“I am looking for people willing to decorate their trunk and have it there, open, and handing out candy,” Prairie Ridge coalition coordinator Mary Beth Holmes said in an email. “If they can supply their own candy, great! If it helps for the coalition to supply candy, I can get that worked out.”

If you have a vehicle with a trunk, you can sign up through a brief Google registration form to help out:

Cars can arrive between 4:30 and 5:00 at 14205 215th Ave E in Bonney Lake, Holmes said, and families attending the event can park in the lots around the park, where the trunks will be located.
