All across the country Trunk-or-Treat festivals have grown exponentially in popularity. Although it’s difficult to pinpoint it’s exact origin, Trunk or Treating began in the late 1990s as an alternative to trick-or-treating, according to Halloween historian, Leslie Bannatyne when interviewed by NPR last year.
The appeal of Trunk-or-Treating is significant for a variety of reasons:
- Safety: You are likely to know most, if not all of the people who will be handing out candy to your child.
- Community: Many cannot enjoy the traditional door-to-door trick or treating when they live in rural areas, miles from their neighbors. This is a fun alternative.
- Fun: Even the parents can join in on the festivities as they decorate their trunks and compete for awards like “Most Spooky!” or “Most Original!”
