Trunk or Treat 2015

Dress up your kids, yourself, and your trunk for the second annual Trunk or Treat halloween event on Saturday, October 17th

The second annual Trunk or Treat will be a day of family fun and treats on October 17Middle Smithfield Township’s Park and Recreation Board will host its second annual Trunk or Treat, at Resica Park on Saturday, October 17, 2015 with a rain date of October 24, 2015 from 12-2pm for the children up to age 12 of our township.  Resica Park is located next to Resica Elementary School off of Gravel Ridge Road in East Stroudsburg.

What is a Trunk or Treat?  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?

We ask that all people who wish to use their vehicle in this year’s Trunk or Treat pre-register so we know we will have enough spots for all vehicles.  Space will be limited and issued on a first-come.

Said Supervisor Mike Dwyer, who is also Public Works/Parks and Recreation Director “The first Trunk or Treat last year was a huge family favorite and we expect this year to be even more popular. I’m really looking forward to seeing the creativity of our participating cars this year.”
