The holidays are coming and it all begins with Halloween!
Do your kids enjoy the candy or the costumes more? Or maybe it’s getting to stay up later than 7:00 PM?
Whatever the case may be for your kids or mine, Halloween is definitely a big deal for most kids in West Michigan.
As soon as my kids’ August birthdays are over, they immediately start asking me how much longer until Halloween and until we can visit a trunk-or-treat or two. We have a couple in Grand Rapids that we like to visit every year just to get more mileage out of our costumes.
Please do note: A lot of things are different in 2020 and that includes trunk or treats. The CDC urges us to use caution when attending more crowded events like trunk or treats.
This year Halloween comes with a set of recommended precautions from the CDC. You can read them here.
Luckily, there are plenty of chances for kids to wear their costumes and collect candy at one (or many!) local trunk or treat events.
Use this list to find trunk-or-treats starting as soon as October 24 all the way up through October 31, 2020.
So far the list includes trunk-0r-treat events in many locations, such as Kentwood, Holland, Hudsonville, Byron Center, Grand Rapids, Ada, Zeeland, Coopersville, Rockford, Cedar Springs, Caledonia, and more.
The 2020 trunk-or-Treat event listings are organized by date.
Have fun and stay safe!
