Trunk or treat in Colwood takes place Saturday

People decorate the trunks of their cars and kids trick-or-treat in the parking lot

Tailgating is common before sporting events, but have you ever heard of a trunk or treat?

The concept is similar but the event is for Halloween. People gather in the parking lot and decorate the trunks of their cars, so kids can trick-or-treat from trunk to trunk.

It’s a safe and fun way for kids to trick-or-treat and they can add to their candy stash before the big event on Wednesday.

Some trunk decorations can be quite elaborate, making it hard to image that it’s actually part of a vehicle.

Westshore Community Events and Colwood Church is hosting the trunk or treat Saturday Oct. 27 from 5 to 7 p.m. in the parking lot of Colwood Church, 2250 Sooke Road.
