Trunk or Treat offers safe Halloween funCommunity event offers treats and entertainment

While most times a responsible parent would warn against taking Halloween candy out of the trunk of a car, when it’s part of an event going on at Community of Hope Church, it’s ok.
The church will host Trunk or Treat from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Oct. 31 in the church parking lot, 14401 Biscayne Ave.
Communications director Renee Graves said members of the church will decorate their trunks and hand out candy to kids from the community. As part of the event, the church will also offer hayrides, a bounce house, a photo booth and refreshments including popcorn and punch.
“Our goal is to have a fun, safe community event,” said Graves.
The idea for Trunk or Treat is not unique to Community of Hope, but pastor Jason Lovold thought it was a fun idea. Lovold said he’s been thinking about what he wants to do with his trunk and is excited to see what others in the congregation come up with. The church has asked that members refrain from anything scary.
“People can get pretty creative, so I think it will be fun,” said Lovold.
Lovold said Community of Hope has held successful Halloween events in the past and they thought it would be good to offer something again this year, especially since the holiday lands on a Wednesday when they would usually meet anyhow.
“We want people to know we’re here and we love them,” said.
The event will go on rain or shine. It’s free and open to the public.
