Calling all goblins and ghouls, princesses and toadstools — it’s that time of year again.
The Fort Bragg Armed Services YMCA is hosting its annual Trunk or Treat at Smith Lake Recreation Area, Oct. 28.
The event is open to military Families and children of all ages.
The only stipulation is that all trick or treaters must be in costume, said Lisa Kotson, Fort Bragg ASYMCA event coordinator.
“The trunk-or-treat is to give our military Families a safe place to have Family fun for Halloween,” she explained.
In addition to trick-or-treating, youth can participate in games like “spooky hoops” and catch the spider.
They can also win awards for the best costume or best dressed Family.
All trunks will be decorated, and Kotson said the best trunks will receive trophies.
“It’s just a great Family time. They can enjoy the outdoors, it’s daylight, it’s safe, and the kids get a lot of great treats,” she said.
The Fort Bragg ASYMCA is currently holding a candy drive, and is accepting individually wrapped candy at their office, located at Building 2-2411 Rodney Trail.
They are also looking for businesses, individuals or businesses interested in having their “trunk” on display.
There is no sponsorship cost if volunteers provide their own wrapped candy, Kotson said.
In case of inclement weather, the event will be cancelled.
