Queen’s Landing Trunk or Treat
Saturday, October 31 from 6 pm to 8 pm
Clubhouse Parking Lot
COVID has been especially tough on our kiddos but maybe there can be a little normalcy and some outright fun for the children of Queen’s Landing on October 31st – starting with the Fall Festival and ending with a community Trunk or Treat!
So gather up the kids, grandkids, neices and nephews, create their costumes, grab a pillow case or whatever is handy for them to carry home their loot and come on down to the clubhouse between 6 pm and 8 pm. No more walking all over the neighborhood searching for the homes that are giving out candy but instead enjoy an easy stroll among the decorated vehicles enjoying the sights and giving the children in your life a night of safe and easy fun! No sign up necessary if just trick or treating, however…
Trunk or Treat Vehicles Needed!
The Social Committee is doing all the organizing for the Trunk or Treat at the clubhouse parking lot but they need your help to make this a success.
If you would like to be one of the creatively decorated trunks participating in this event please sign up by clicking on this link Trunk or Treat Vehicle Participant as the Social Committee does need a count of vehicles so that vehicle parking can be mapped out and your spot provided to you. Remember, even if you have children that will want to trick or treat, you can still be a trunk participant as your kids will always be in sight and within shouting distance while you can relax at your vehicle giving out candy knowing your kids are having fun and are safe! Come on QL, let’s show the kiddos of this community that Halloween is alive and well!
What is a Trunk or Treat?
Over the past few years a trend has bubbled up in communities, particularly in places where you may not know your neighbors very well—or the houses that particpate in giving out candy are so far apart that by the time the kids have hit house No. 4, everyone’s ready to call it a night. It’s called Trunk-or-Treating, and the premise is simple: A bunch of community members band together (typically in a school or church parking lot but for QL, in the clubhouse parking lot), deck out their trunks with Halloween decorations like they’re starring in an episode of Pimp My Ride: Spooktacular Edition, and let their kids meander from car to car, collecting candy at each stop.
If at first this seems a little lackluster, just wait until you see the cars. Some people really get into creating themed designs that blow away most of the houses in a typical neighborhood, like the SUV-turned-pirate-ship featured in this message. And, becuase this is an ever growing popular trend you can either create your owned decorated theme for your vehicle or you can purchase decorating kits online.
