Fall Festival and Trunk or Treat Set for Oct. 20

City of Kentwood’s Fall Festival Set for Oct. 20
Annual Event to Include Trunk or Treat, Hayrides, Face Painting and More

Trick-or-treaters are invited to take part in the City of Kentwood’s annual Fall Festival and Trunk or Treat event on Saturday, Oct. 20. 

The free event will be held at the Kentwood Department of Public Works facility, located at 5068 Breton Ave. SE, from 10 a.m. to noon. Family friendly activities will include hayrides, face painting, a bounce house and games.

The festival will also feature the community fall-favorite, Trunk or Treat, where various City and community vehicles decorate and fill their trunks with candy.

Residents will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite trunk out of the 30 organizations and community groups that will be handing out candy and other treats throughout the morning. Children are encouraged to wear Halloween costumes and bring their own candy-collection bag for the activity.

“Our Fall Festival and Trunk or Treat event gives families a safe and fun environment to take part in Halloween activities,” said Val Romeo, Kentwood Parks and Recreation director. “It’s been exciting watching the event grow with more residents and businesses attending every year. All are welcome to join us Oct. 20 for what we hope will be our biggest turnout yet.”

Local businesses and community groups wishing to participate in Trunk or Treat can register for free online. The deadline to sign up is 4 p.m. Friday, Oct. 12. 

Helpers are needed from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Individuals who are interested in volunteering can sign up online.
