Trunk Or Treat is Back

Last year Monroe canceled Halloween and held Trunk Or Treat instead. Now both will be celebrated.

Loose branches hanging from trees following storms posed a safety hazard to children trick or treating last year, so First Selectman Steve Vavrek canceled celebration of the holiday. Instead, Monroe held Trunk Or Treat in the Wolfe Park parking lot. It was well attended, with children dressed up in costumes visiting cars full of candy.

This October, Monroe families can celebrate Halloween with trick or treating and Trunk Or Treat. The latter event is coming back and donations will benefit the Monroe Food Pantry and Project Warmth.

Trunk Or Treat will be held in the Masuk High School parking lot on Oct. 27 from 4 to 7 p.m. and suggested donations for Project Warmth is five dollars per car.

To attend, register at Monroerec.org or pay at the gate.

That's a cute idea! All the kids in my Monroe neighborhood trick-or-treated anyway last year though, Halloween was postponed, not canceled.

Correct, and it wasn't because of hanging branches. It was postponed because we had two and a half feet of snow on October 29th last year. I am wondering why the public will be charged $5 to hand out candy at a school parking lot?? Does anyone else find that odd??

Wolfe - No, I am not troubled by a $5 SUGGESTED DONATION that goes to benefit the local project warmth program.

No problem for me donating 5 bucks. It goes to a good cause and my little ones had a blast last year!!!

no problem donating $5 to a good cause but wondering about the use of Wolfe Park lot last year for a "secret" Trunk or Treat that was posted on some facebook pages and then deleted minutes later?? now i am hearing it was set up by some of the same people setting up this one??

Jim - I thought the trunk-or-treat was your idea last year?
jim laguardia October 22, 2012 at 01:26 PM
