Annual Trunk or Treat Set for Oct. 22

City of Kentwood to Host Annual Trunk or Treat Event Oct. 22

Community members are invited to enjoy some spooky Halloween fun at the City of Kentwood’s Trunk or Treat event Saturday, Oct. 22.

The free event will take place 10 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Department of Public Works, 5068 Breton Ave. SE, where more than 25 City and community vehicles will be stationed with decorated trunks filled with treats.

In addition to collecting candy, participants will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite trunk. Children are encouraged to wear Halloween costumes and bring their own bag for collecting candy.

“Trunk or Treat provides a more controlled trick-or-treating environment while also giving local organizations and leaders a chance to connect with residents,” said Val Romeo, Kentwood Parks and Recreation director. “We’re looking forward to enjoying some family fun and seeing many community members in costumes and creative trunk designs at this year’s event.”

Local businesses and community groups wishing to participate in Trunk or Treat can register for free online until 4 p.m. Friday, Oct. 14. More information and volunteer sign-up can be found at
