Trunk or Treat; Wednesday, October 30th, 2019

Join Morehead City Parks and Recreation Department for our first annual Trunk or Treat! This event will take place on Wednesday, October 30th from 5:00-6:30 PM on the 1600 block of Fisher Street in Morehead City.  “Trunk or Treat” is an opportunity for families to safely trick or treat out of the decorated trunks of parked cars.  We invite participants to be as creative as possible when decorating their trunks, but keep in mind there will be some young children there, so please, nothing too gory!  Awards will be given for best costume, as well as best trunk.  We will also offer face painting and games!  Bring the whole family out for a fun and safe Halloween event.  We are still in need of trunk hosts!  Entry is free and highly encouraged.  Registration closes October 15th.  Sign up at the Morehead City Recreation Department at 1600 Fisher Street, register online by clicking the credit card registration link on our homepage (you won’t be charged) or mail entry form to Victoria Ward at Morehead City Parks and Recreation Department, 706 Arendell Street, Morehead City, NC, 28557.   For more information, send Victoria a message or call 252-726-5083 ext 6.
