Candy donations and “trunks” are still needed for the fifth annual Mountlake Terrace Trunk ‘R Treat set for Friday, Oct. 31 on the corner of 232nd and 56th Avenue West in the heart of downtown Mountlake Terrace.
Trunk ‘R Treat provides a safe zone for kids to walk from trunk to trunk and ask for a treat. Red Onion Burgers, Espresso Break and Cheeseburger Babies Foundation sponsor the event. This year the Mountlake Terrace Business Association has added their ghoulish arm to the event.
Trunk ‘R Treat is an event with over 40 community partners picking a Halloween theme, decorating their trunks and dress themselves in costume. The partners gather and park. The rest is magic. They open their trunks and pass out candy or treats to over 1,500 children who stop by each trunk and trick or treat.
This year promises to be bigger and better. Espresso Break is adding a hot apple cider station. Cheeseburger Babies Foundation is adding a Children’s games area and Red Onion Burgers is adding a Halloween lollipop tree. With the added sponsorship of the Mountlake Terrace Business Association comes a haystack candy scramble and, for the first time, an award for the best-decorated trunk judged by secret goblins.
The sponsors are looking for more businesses and individuals to join our community partnership and offer your trunk as part of this annual event. Your participation may include a decorated trunk and about 1,500 pieces of candy or treats. Trunks can be decorated in many different ways.
If you are not able to participate, bring a bag of candy or two to Red Onion Burgers at 21005 44th Ave. W. In return Red Onion Burgers passes out bags of candy to our community partners at the event if they run out of candy. If you would like to participate or have questions please call Seaun Richards at 425-218-5996.
