There’s no room for tricks when the candy caravan comes around! Saturday, October 30th, the Stroudsburg Wesleyan Church held its annual Trunk or Treat and there was certainly no shortage of treats.

From 12 to 4, about 35 volunteer “trunks”, operated by groups from the church and from the local area, handed candy out to approximately 1000 trick or treaters. These volunteers got themselves into the festive spirit and revamped their wheels into mobile Halloween décor. Ranging from scenes of Jurassic Park and Frozen, to taking the shape of Jack Skellington and medieval knights in their castle, there was a theme for everyone to enjoy. Furthermore, there were even indoor photo booths and bounce houses for all to enjoy once they collected their bounty of sweets.

For over ten years, the Stroudsburg Wesleyan Church has been holding this annual gathering for Trunk or Treating to offer some safe and family-friendly fun to community, regardless of their religion or beliefs. The church is happy to hold events such as this to help bring the community together and be a supportive and dependable member to all that are in it, no matter who they are.
