ESCANABA — The Second Annual Trunk or Treat event will take place Oct. 31st from 4 to 6 p.m. in downtown Escanaba. Trunk or Treat is a safe place for kids to get lots of free candy, organizers said. Dressed up vehicles will be parked in the Escanaba Farmer’s Market lot, corner of 9th Street and 1st Avenue North, with their trunks open and tailgates down. Inside the trunks will be loads of candy for the children that friendly volunteers will hand out.
The event is an area wide effort by Silver Winds Church, city of Escanaba, Downtown Development Authority and over thirty other corporate sponsors. “This year we even have sugar-free candy for diabetic children,” said Rev. Art Radlicki, pastor of Silver Winds Church. About 1,000 people visited the site last year and many more can be served this year.
