The North Scottsdale United Methodist Church is hosting its 18th annual Trunk or Treat Festival to provide a free, safe and friendly experience for all children and families.

The event is to be 4-6 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 30, in the church parking lot, 11735 N. Scottsdale Road.

This year’s event will begin with carnival games, snow cones and bouncer.  Food trucks will be on-site selling dinner options, according to a press release.

Halfway through the event the NSUMC Youth Group will lead children in a costume parade.  The night will end with the awarding of trophies for exceptional costumes and decorated trunks, and the highly coveted “Trunk-or-Treating.”

The basic Trunk or Treating guidelines include:

  • Wear a friendly costume (please leave the scary ones at home)
  • Back your vehicle into a NSUMC parking space
  • Decorate your trunk (creativity is good!)
  • Set up folding chairs next to your trunk
  • Place your treats (candy) in your trunk.

NSUMC asks that attending families donate canned and dry goods for Vista del Camino Children’s After School Recreation Center in Scottsdale.
