The City of Rio Grande City hosted the annual Trunk or Treat event on Wednesday, October 25th, at the Basilio Villarreal Municipal Park.
“There were several businesses and organizations in attendance giving out goodies to all the little ghosts and goblins who participated in the trick or treating,” said Rio Grande City Parks & Rec. Director Frank Eguia Jr. “These events are made possible for our community by the combined efforts of local businesses, organizations, school districts, city departments and our City Commission. When we come together, we can continue to provide great things for the City of RGC.”
“We would like to thank everyone who participated and made this event so successful,” added Rio Grande City Mayor Joel Villarreal.
A Trunk or Treat event is a Halloween event where a group of cars with elaborately decorated trunks gathers in a parking lot, and kids go from car to car for treats, games, and other Halloween fun.
Trunk or Treat events are generally considered safer than traditional trick-or-treating because they are often held in a controlled environment where parents can keep an eye on their children. Additionally, because the event is organized, there is less chance of children wandering into unsafe areas or encountering strangers. Trunk or Treat events also tend to be shorter in duration than traditional trick-or-treating, which means that children are exposed to fewer risks.
