Halloween will be here before you know it, and Trunk or Treat is a way for children to celebrate the holiday in a safe, supervised environment.

The United Way of Greensboro’s Young Leaders expect over 2,000 kids and adults to join them on Sunday, Oct. 27 from 2 to 4 p.m. in the parking lot of the United Way office at 1500 Yanceyville St. The event is free and open to the public.

The first 2,000 folks will receive a voucher for a free kid’s meal at Texas Roadhouse and 150 attendees will also receive a voucher for a free biscuit at Biscuitville. Free popcorn will be available no matter when you arrive from Let’s Keep it Poppin’.

For Trunk or Treat, volunteers creatively decorate the trunks of their vehicles and fill them with candy, and also more healthy treats, for children to enjoy.

Along with over 500 pounds of candy, there will be thousands of toothbrushes, tubes of toothpaste, healthy snacks and beverages courtesy of Procter & Gamble, Touloupas & Touloupas Dentistry and Coke.

Luke Akers and his race car will be there along with representatives of the Greensboro Fire Department.

Trunk or Treat will also have face painting and Halloween themed games and prizes. Music will be provided by Best Night Ever DJ and Events.

Many folks prefer Trunk or Treat over traditional trick or treating because it is during the day and in a supervised area, making it safer for their kids.

But then again, by Halloween, some kids may be ready to put on their costumes and venture out into the night for more treats.
