During the event, participating adults decorate their vehicles (and sometimes wear costumes themselves) and open their candy-filled trunks for local kids to trick-or-treat. Decorated trunks will be judged, and one trunk will be named the winner.
The event also features Halloween music, hot apple cider and Diamond Knott root beer. It’s a safe, fun way to enjoy Halloween in Mountlake Terrace.
Adults wanting to participate with trunks of candy are asked to bring at least 1,500 pieces of candy or prizes. For safety reasons, the Mountlake Terrace Business Association asks all trunks to arrive on-site by 4 p.m. and be completely set up by 4:30 p.m. Any kids arriving early will be asked to wait until 5 p.m. to start Trunk r Treat-ing.
If you are interested in hosting a trunk, please call Maria Ellis at 206-793-4201, or mail a note with your name, business name, mailing address, phone number and email address to: Truck R Treat, P.O. Box 654, Mountlake Terrace, WA 98043.
