What is a "trunk or treat"?

A church by my mom's house is having something called 'trunk or treat" tomorrow night and she wants to go. What exactly is "trunk or treat", lol? Where they pass out candy from their trunk or something, haha?

  • They pass out treats in the parking lot. It's supposed to be a safe alternative, but be prepared for the literature and brochures they throw in with the candy.

  • Yes, that's basically what it is. Instead of going house to house to trick or treat, they go from car to car in a parking lot. :)

  • I have gone to a lot of "trunk or treat" and I have NEVER received anything to do with the religion of the church it's held at. It's for anyone in that area to hand out candy so the kids are not going door to door. I wish more towns had it.
