Johnsburg Central School's PTSA unveils Halloween tradition

NORTH CREEK - Not the traditional Halloween parade, members of Johnsburg Central School's Parent, Teacher, Student Association will introduce their first annual Trunk or Treat to the local community.

Coined a "Trunk or Treat" by co-chairs Sue Hayden, Brandy Richards and Julie Wolfe, the event was designed to get kids off the street on Halloween and provide an alternative avenue for local children to trick or treat.

Rather than going door-to-door, children will be going trunk-to-trunk.

Participants will park their cars in the JCS parking lot with decorated trunks ajar and welcome trick or treaters to their Halloween vehicles for candy Sunday, Oct. 31, from 4 to 6 p.m.

"It provides a safe family environment for trick or treaters," said Hayden.

Anyone interested is welcome to enter a vehicle for the event. "Trunkers" will be automatically entered in a decorating contest and prizes will be awarded in various categories.

"We encourage people to be as creative as possible with their trunks," said Hayden. "We want this to be as much fun for the adults as it is for the children."

Concessions will also be available as a fundraiser for the JCS class of 2012.

Trick or treaters and their parents should park at the North Creek Fire Department and cross to the school with the crossing guard.

"Trunkers" can register their vehicles by calling JCS at 251-2921 and must provide their own decorations and treats. Deadline for registration is Thursday, Oct. 28.
