Trunk or Treat 2013



Trunk or Treat 2013
The Trunk or Treat, hosted by Decatur Parks and Recreation, had a record breaking 7,000 people attend this year! There was no possible way for the Event Committee to know that it would draw that size of a crowd but they were more than pleased when it did. The goals had been set at 5,000 people and to collect 4 tons of canned goods for the Committee on Church Cooperation (CCC). Not only did they surpass the 5,000 mark, they also reached the donated canned goods goal. The move to Ingalls Pavilion from its previous venue at Wilson Morgan Park appears to have been a very wise decision. Epic Church partnered with Park & Rec to help ensure that the event was successful.
This year there were 50 trunks outside for trunk or treaters to collect goodies. When they finished outside they could then move inside the pavilion to play all types of carnival style games, enjoy live entertainment, watch a martial arts demonstration, collect more goodies from booths, enjoy a warm hot dog and a cold drink and finish the evening by walking through a hay maze. For parents there was even a bus full of vampires (LifeSouth) that were willing to take your blood for a good cause.
Another difference this year was the costume contest. Instead of lining up and being judged as in years passed, contestants had their picture taken and posted on the Parks & Rec Facebook page. This way the public could vote and decide the winners. Winners are announced on Halloween. Just watch Facebook to find out who won this year.
There was tons of fun to be had this year. Hopefully, next year the Parks & Recreation Department will do something even bigger and better. Thank you, Decatur for coming out and supporting the Fall event and the local Parks & Recreation!
