Want to wear your Halloween costume, collect candy in a safe environment and enjoy lots of fun activities? Several Pine Mountain churches, a grocery store, Pine Mountain Settlement School and the North Side community have partnered together for their annual “Trunk or Treat”event, which will be held on the campus of PMSS this year.
To make sure there is space for everyone the event has moved to the campus of Pine Mountain Settlement School and will be held on Halloween, Oct. 31 beginning at 3 p.m. said school officials.
“Pine Mountain is excited to host this community-wide event in partnership with local churches, businesses and community members,” said PMSS Director Geoff Marietta.
Hosting this year’s event are Big Laurel Baptist Church, Little Laurel Bible Church, Cedar Chapel, New Beginning Community Church, A&A Turners Grocery, PMSS and the North Side community.
Hayrides will kick the event off at 3 p.m. and last until 5 p.m. “Trunk or Treat” will begin at 5 p.m. and end at 7 p.m. A bonfire and storytelling will be held from 7-9 p.m.
During the “Trunk or Treat” there will be contests and prizes for best costume. Winners will be selected from age groups 0-4, 5-9, 10-14, 15-18. Winners from each category will receive a $15 Walmart gift card. There will also be a “best pumpkin” and “best trunk decorations” competition. The winners of these contests will also receive a $15 Walmart gift card.
