Trunk or Treat

Canyon Lake

Thank you for your interest in our first Trunk or Treat addition to the Halloween Carnival and Costume Contest Event.  Held Sunday October 20th from noon to 4pm at Holiday Harbor.  There is no cost to enter but you must be prepared to hand out some kind of treat to the attendees, such as candy, or small prizes like pencils, stickers, spiders or something that matches your theme.  If you have not heard of a Trunk of Treat it is where families, groups or businesses decorate their vehicles with a Halloween theme and pass out goodies.  If you are participating as a business you ae welcome to hang a sign advertising it.

This is our first year hosting the event, so we are not sure how many children to expect, but would encourage you to plan for 150-250 items to be handed out.  We hope to make this an annual part of the Halloween Carnival and Costume Contest.  We thank you for support our inaugural Trunk or Treat.
