FAIRFIELD, Conn. – More than 800 costumed Fairfield residents made their way to the Second Annual Trick or Trunk event held by McKinley School in the parking lot at Warde High School.
More than 40 cars had their trunks open last Saturday, each with a different theme for kids of all ages to explore, from basketball and Studio 54 to witches, mad scientists and even a sled of snow for the National Ski Patrol Station. Each one was handing out treats to the many superheroes, princesses and ghouls who came to the event.
“Last year’s event was just for McKinley families,” says Jill Kellerman, co-chair and McKinley PTA co-president. “But it was so successful and fun that we wanted to open it up to the public.”
Event Co-chair Janine Jaeger said the $5 per child admission to the event pays for many PTA programs, including field trips and cultural and art events.
The event was held to provide a safe environment for families across the town to enjoy pre-Halloween trick-or-treating.
