Back when I was young enough to go trick or treating you could only go door to door to get your candy. Hopefully you lived in a big neighbor or else your parents were driving you somewhere to knock on doors. Times have change when it comes to Trick or Treating. Yes, you can still go door to door but you can also attend an organized trick or treating event. The Trick & Trunk events have become a popular way to take your kids out on the candy hunt.

The idea varies based on the organizer of the event and their theme but the idea is that everyone gathers in one place with their car trunk decorated and candy for trick or treating. Check out some of the ones we found for you and your little goblins.
