The event took place in the parking lots of Waleska First United Methodist Church and Falany Performing Arts Center and went on from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Volunteer Carlee Baxter said that “handing out candy was the best part of Fall so far because it made [her] feel like [she] was giving back.”  She also mentioned how the smiles on the kids faces made her proud to be a volunteer.

Many groups and organizations from on campus showed up, including the wrestling team, ZTA, Kappa Sigma and many more.  Members from the community also came and set up their own trunks to show support.

Mother and Reinhardt student Ashlyn Carlton brought her son Colt to Trunk or Treat to celebrate his first Halloween.  She said that “It was so much fun to see him reach into the bowl and grab his first piece of candy.”

Trunk or Treat brings the Reinhardt and Waleskian communities together and gets people excited for Halloween next Wednesday.  Some cars have already begun plans for their 2019 decorations.
