Williams PTO preparing for annual Truck-or-Treat

When October rolls around, the minds of children drift to thoughts of Halloween candy – and how to get it.

And for the second year, the Williams Upper Elementary School’s Parent Teacher Organization is going to make it easy.

The second annual Trunk or Treat event will be held from 5 PM to 8 PM on Friday, Oct. 27, in the school’s parking lot, in conjunction with a Halloween carnival inside the multi-purpose room.

“Trunk-or-Treat is a safe and fun way for K-6 children and families to enjoy Halloween in a safe controlled environment,” organizers said. “You will decorate your trunk, car, trailer, or other vehicle and students go from car to car trick-or-treating.”

Registration is required to participate, and only vehicles properly registered with the PTO will be allowed.

The cost to participate is $35, which will include all the candy or treats to hand out to children.

No outside candy will be allowed, although non-edible treats like toothbrushes, wristbands, or books can be handed out in addition to the candy provided.

The PTO encourages people to decorate their entire vehicles and come in costume – as there will be a “best car” competition. However, only decorating the trunk is required.

For safety purposes, vehicles will not be allowed to move or leave the parking area until the event is over, PTO organizers said.

No political, religious or gang-related advertising will be allowed, and inappropriate vehicles or costumes will be required to leave the premises.

The event will be held rain or shine so having appropriate covers for costumes and vehicles is recommended.

A limited amount of space will also be available this year for participates to choose having a decorated truck/table inside the carnival.

Participants must arrive between 3:45 PM and 4:45 PM, and must stay until the event is over at 8 PM.

For more information about how to participate in the second annual Truck-or-Treat, contact Williams Upper Elementary PTO members Kelly Lewis at (530) 415-7047 or Maryah Stoots (916) 213-7884.
