Thornton hosts 'Trunk or Treat'
Halloween celebration takes place October 22

THORNTON, CO…Join in the fun of Thornton’s Trunk or Treat takes place on October 22, from 6-9 p.m., in the Carpenter Park Fields parking lot off 108th Avenue and Colorado Boulevard.

On that night, cars will line up and owners will pop their car trunks, and decorate them for the spooky evening. Then, they’ll hand out candy to kids ages 12 and under. Candy for the kids will be provided by the City of Thornton as well as several candy partners and donations. To defray the cost of the candy, there is a $1 admission fee for everyone who enters the event.

Due to the popularity of this event, the parking lot and admission line will be closed prior to the end of the event in order to ensure the 9 p.m. closing time.

Trunk or Treat was introduced in 2007 as a safe and fun environment for children and their families to enjoy Halloween.
