Trunk Or Treat 2022

It is that time of year again when ghosts and goblins join forces with pirates and princesses, and all other kinds of fun creative types, to go around begging people for candy. This year I saw a lot of sharks and super heroes as well. It’s Halloween of course.

Instead of kids going from house to house, as we all did when we were growing up, more and more kids are going to organized trunk or treats all around town. It is a safer option, with lots of fun activities for the whole family to enjoy. Once again, our church hosted a very successful Trunk or Treat, with about 500 people in attendance. We had more than enough candy his year, as well as hot dogs, popcorn and cotton candy.

Once again, I was the church photographer and took a ton of pictures. I took well over 400 pictures for the event, but I will NOT share them all with you today. I will just give you a little snippet of all the costumes and fun that I saw. All the kids looked great. Some were cute and some were scary, but everyone had a great time, and that’s what it’s really all about. 🙂

It was a family affair, for kids of all ages to enjoy. I don’t know who had more fun, the adults or the kids.

Lacy is the creative genius who planned this fun event. Here she is with her best guys.

We had quite a few cars that participated and they were all so creative.

This one with the 101 Dalmatians theme was fantastic.

As well as this one with The Under the Sea theme.

Wendy’s donuts were deliciously fun too, as well as her daughter Zoe’s 1950’s diner theme.

Everyone had loads of fun, but it is always the littlest ones who bring the most joy to me. I love seeing them all dressed up with the bags of candy and big smiles.

The Count.

A cute little duckling.

A rainbow kitty.

And a green stegosaurus.

These two are giving me their best super hero poses.

To infinity and beyond.

The dragon slayer.

Our beautiful little Bambi.

This is the cutest shark I have ever seen, and I have seen a lot of sharks too.

This beautiful monarch is more than ready to spread her wings.

We had all kinds of games for everyone to enjoy too.

We had face paintings.

And we had hot dogs. Larry was the dog master.

James is serving up the dogs.

Don’t eat this dog though. Elijah might bite back.

We even had a taco.

Our pastors like to get in on all the fun too. Pastor Michael, our Musical Director, and his family.

Pastor John with his family, his mom Peggy and Lacy. Lacy is our Young Kids Director.

And our Lead Pastor, Matthew giving some sage advice to these trick or treaters.

I was busy taking pictures, but my black panther, Nicky (Nicodemus) wanted to get in on the Halloween fun too. We took a picture right before meeting all the trick or treaters. She says BOO!

As you can see it was a great day and we got so many people to participate in all our games, activities and fun. Everyone left with lots of candy, lots of fun memories and lots of smiles. Happy Halloween Everyone. Stay safe and stay well. ‘Til next time.
