There were all kinds of spooky and scary things and things that go bump in the night the evening of Oct. 31 at Pop Harvey Park, but it was nothing to be too concerned about. It was Halloween, and this was the Town of Parker’s annual “Trunk or Treat” event.
Trunk or Treat has individuals, clubs, service agencies, businesses, churches and others back their vehicles up to the edge of the park. From there, they hand out candy to trick or treaters. The event is billed as a safe and fun alternative to traditional door-to-door trick or treating.
The event is organized by the Town of Parker’s Parks & Recreation Committee.
Committee Member Jennifer Aspa said this was the largest Trunk or Treat they’ve ever had. She said the vehicles stretched all the way around the block that is the park. The streets around the park, including Mohave Avenue, Agency Road, Navajo Avenue, and Ninth Street were closed for the occasion.
In addition to trick or treating, other activities including games, two bouncy castles, and a haunted houe run by Teen Solutions and Youth 4 Youth.
