BREVARD COUNTY • SUNTREE, FLORIDA – Little princesses and superheroes, pirates and dinosaurs will be out in force when Suntree United Methodist Church in Suntree hosts its annual Trunk or Treat event on Saturday, October 23, from 5 p.m to 7 p.m. 

Young trunk or treaters and their families are invited to dress in costume and visit each decorated vehicle along a designated path on the church grounds at 7400 N. Wickham Road in north Melbourne.

Adding to the not-too-spooky fun will be an open-top inflatable bounce house and inflatable slide, spike ball, corn toss and Connect 4-yard games.

In addition, two balloon artists will be strolling the grounds, fashioning balloon creations for the children. A variety of specialty food trucks will be on-site for families wishing to purchase dinner or additional treats.

More than 1,000 attendees are expected to walk through and collect free candy. Prizes will be awarded for Best and Most Creative trunk displays.

Suntree United Methodist Church ‘Trunk or Treat’ will award prizes for the most creatively decorated trunks during the annual trick-or-treat event for children on October 23. Call 321-242-2585 for more information.

After offering a drive-thru version of Trunk or Treat in 2020, the community-minded church is resuming the traditional “walkable” format, which still offers plenty of room for social distancing.

Reverend Allee Willcox, Associate Pastor for Suntree United Methodist Church, is pleased to recommend the annual Trunk or Treat event as a safe, family-friendly way for children and parents alike to enjoy the annual fall tradition.

“Trunk or Treat is a great chance to meet members of our community, and to see the amazing displays by our creative volunteers,” said Rev. Willcox.

“This event has been the centerpiece of our fall family ministries for a very long time, and we’re all excited to see it return in full force this year. The kids just love it!”

Over the past two decades, “Trunk or Treat” has emerged as a popular alternative to the neighborhood trick or treating traditionally associated with Halloween in America.

Participants park the side of their car by side in a designated area and open their decorated trunks from which to distribute candy to a parade of costumed children.
