The Middle Smithfield Township Board of Supervisors are excited to announce the first annual Trunk or Treat, a fun and safe event where kids and big kids (adults) can dress up themselves and their cars and go safely from vehicle to vehicle to get their treats without worries.

The “big kids” (adults) get to dress up and dress up their car, while the children wear a costume, and go safely from vehicle to vehicle to get their treats without worries. What better way to clean out the junk in your trunk, and fill it with treats? Pre-register your car now. Space will be limited!

Entertainment for the day will include wandering performers, arts and crafts table for the kids, face painters, magicians, and balloon artists.

“This is the newest of our annual events, geared toward the whole family,” said Supervisor Mike Dwyer, who is also Public Works/Parks and Recreation Director, “I’m sure the Trunk or Treat will quickly become one of the favorite annual traditions in our township. It’s our way of giving back to the community. Oh, and I get to be Mickey Mantle for a day.” Dwyer joked “If ever you have a choice between being Supervisor or Mickey Mantle – always be Mickey Mantle.”

The Trunk or Treat event will take place at Resica Park on October 25th, from 2-5pm and is for children up to age 12. We ask that participating vehicles pre-register by October 22nd so that we know how much space to provide. Space for vehicles is limited.
