Trunk-or-Treat & Food Drive

Saturday October 27th from 4 to 6 pm – 4th St. & Arkansas St. – (Lot opens at 3 pm for set-up)

It’s back! Last year’s Trunk-or-Treat was a great success, but we were only getting started. This year will be even bigger and better! To refresh your memory, Trunk-or-Treat is an opportunity to decorate the trunk of a car, bed of a truck, back of a van, a table, a tent, a booth (you name it, really) in the Halloween spirit for kids (of all ages) to visit and enjoy. You might choose to pass out candy or other refreshments, or have a game of skill, silly entertainment or any other Halloween or carnival-like activity. Go it alone or join forces with other Pinckney neighbors. As long as it’s kid-friendly and in relative good taste, your imagination is your only limit. Everyone is welcome to participate, even if you don’t have an actual kid in your household. Awards will be given to the entries and costumes voted best by the crowd. If you’re not convinced, check out last year’s photos in the Photo Gallery!

Food Drive: In addition to having fun and getting to know your neighbors better, we will again have an opportunity to give back to the community by donating nonperishable food and money to Just Food Douglas County. Last year we collected 130 lbs of food! Let’s try to top that and challenge other neighborhoods to do the same!
