Trunk-or-Treat is a cherished, annual, family fun event at Guardian Angels.
Each year, we number the spaces of our main parking lot and families choose their
desired spot or have one assigned upon arrival. Once the gates open, you proceed to your
designated space and begin transforming your vehicle into a Halloween delight!
Some of our extremely creative families go all out with this transformation, turning their vehicles
into incredible make-believe spaces, places or things. Hollywood has nothing on them and it can be
hard to choose which one to vote for! Don't let that intimidate you though, no effort is too small and
some of us prefer to kick back in our lawn chairs and just pass out candy.
Once all vehicles are parked, we close the main gate to the parking lot and at 6:30pm the trick-or-treating
begins! The kids trick-or-treat from car to car, usually with their parents trying to keep up. In addition to
trick-or-treating, there is a DJ, and additional activities for all ages.
Everyone gets to vote for the Best in Show (their favorite vehicle), as well as their favorite Best Dressed
Pumpkin! If you see a pumpkin you cannot live without, feel free to place a bid on the appropriate
silent auction sheet. In addition, all attendees are entered into a drawing for a door prize! All winners
are announced that night and you must be present to win.
At the end of the evening, we make sure all children are in their vehicles before we open the gate
and safely direct all vehicles out of the lot.
We ask that each family bring enough candy for all the children and we will update you with those numbers
as the registration progresses.
We highly recommend securing a space in the Main Lot and being part of the action! It really is THE place
to be for this event. We also highly recommend bringing a lawn chair, because these kids have far
more energy than we do!
We do offer parking in the maze as well. Please refer to the specific details below.
We look forward to seeing you there!
