Trunk or treat has moved! Trunk or Treat is moving to the street and will take place on Ellsworth Road (between Ocotillo and Rittenhouse). 

Save the date for this unique annual event! Trunk or Treat provides a safe environment for families to enjoy an  inexpensive evening of Halloween fun in a festival atmosphere! Children trick-or-treat by going from car trunk to car trunk on “Trunk or Treat Street” to get their bag filled with goodies. Individuals or groups sign up to host and decorate a trunk, and the Town provides all the candy to be given out at the event. Admission is free.

Ghouls, goblins and ghosts of all ages will enjoy a festival of activities. So come out and join us for some ghoulish games, frightening food and freaky fun.

BubbleManiacs Bubble Zone

The BubbleManiacs Bubble Zone is coming to Trunk or Treat! Kids of all ages will be soaking up the fun as they immerse themselves in all things bubbles - from blowing, catching and popping them to learning about the science that makes them spectacular. Kids will have the chance to have fun and learn at several interactive bubble stations, including:

Making Your Own Bubble Wand - Kids can use pipe cleaners to make their very own bubble wand!

Chemistry Station - Become a chemist for a day! Young scientists will experiment with mixes of water, soap, baking soda and a glycerin solution to see what makes the ultimate batch of bubble solution.

Physics Station - Where science buffs can discover why all bubbles are round, along with other fun bubble facts.

Kid in a Bubble Station - Experience bubbles in a whole new way and be encapsulated in a giant bubble. It's a great experience to bring a camera and capture the moment. 

Smoke Bubbles - Where experts will blow up cool smoke bubbles, which will burst with smoke when they pop. 

Get your Own Bubbles - This station makes sure kids can share the fun by handing out a bubble kit take-away to continue the play (while supplies last). 

Bubble Art - Create a unique masterpiece using different colored bubbles.

Giant Bubbles - Help make enormous, several-foot long bubbles using giant bubble wands. 

Cost: $3 or 6 tickets (tickets = .50/tickets)
