Cheer Infinity is inviting families and local businesses to kick-start the week prior to Halloween by coming together as a community for their event “Trunk or Treat.”
The outdoor event will be hosted on Saturday, Oct. 23 from 1-3 p.m. in the Moose Jaw Alliance Church parking lot.
Businesses and organizations will be festively decorating their vehicles and filling them with candy while families tour from one trunk to the next. It is estimated that about 150-250 kids will attend.
“It will be a blast. Support local businesses while showing off your Halloween costumes and receiving candy,” says business co-owner, Melissa Marzolf.
Registration is important as it ensures a time slot to help control the crowds with safe distancing. The fee will be $10 for each family.
Families that are eager to participate can register by email or visit the website. There will be a Trunk or Treat section to click on.
Furthermore, families can register when they arrive. E-transfer is also accepted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is no cost for businesses to register.
“We ask them to just bring their vehicles and decorate their trunk however they would like and then have candy goodies ready for the kids. If they would like to hand out fliers, info or anything to promote their business, they can,” says Marzolf.
Cheer Infinity employees will promote and advertise the attending businesses on social media before, during and after the event.
You can decorate any kind of vehicle you would like including tractors or grain trucks.
“A tractor would be fun. I think the kids would love that,” said Marzolf.
“What we are doing is a little different from last year. We are going to email the businesses that are registered and update them daily with how many people are to be expected for the event to prepare adequate amounts of goodies for the kids.”
The businesses that are registered will be emailed a map of location the day of the event. When businesses arrive there will be volunteers guiding them to the right locations to set up the trunks so it will be a nice flow for when the kids arrive.
Everyone who attends gets a chance to vote for their favourite vehicle to win a prize. Last year, the winner received a gift basket with gift cards for businesses in town.
“We are super excited to be able to run it again and happy to have more businesses joining. The more kids, the funner it is. We love to see all the kids dressed up in Halloween costumes enjoying themselves. Coming together is more important now than ever,” says, Marzolf.
