City of Kentwood to Host Annual Trunk or Treat Oct. 23

Trick-or-treaters are invited to don their costumes and come to the City of Kentwood’s Trunk or Treat event Saturday, Oct. 23.

The free event will take place 10 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Department of Public Works, 5068 Breton Ave. SE, where 20-plus City and community vehicles will be stationed with decorated trunks filled with candy.

In addition to collecting candy, participants will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite trunk. Children are encouraged to wear Halloween costumes and face coverings and bring their own bag for collecting candy.

“Trunk or Treat gives families a fun alternative to door-to-door Halloween activities while connecting with community organizations in a more controlled environment,” said Val Romeo, Kentwood Parks and Recreation director. “It also offers holiday-decor enthusiasts the opportunity to get creative with their trunks. Halloween is such a spirited holiday, and we’re looking forward to seeing all of the costumes and trunks that come out of this year’s event.”

Local businesses and community groups wishing to participate in Trunk or Treat can register for free online until 4 p.m. Friday, Oct. 15.

The Kentwood Parks and Recreation Department will continue to monitor public health guidance and state orders, which may necessitate changes to the event.
