'Trunk-or-Treat' a highlight of Brentwood-Darlington Hallowe'en
Fun and games were afoot when the Brentwood-Darlington Neighborhood Association (BDNA) hosted its third annual "SpookTacular" party on the afternoon of October 22.
Inside the Brentwood-Darlington Community Center, neighbors were dining on pizza and pot-luck goodies.
"In the side lot, about a dozen vehicles parked, and opened the backs of their vehicles (decorated for Hallowe'en) for our now-annual "Trunk-or-Treat'; that is, instead of kids going door-to-door, they ask for candy up and down the line of cars. We just love providing a fun, safe, free community event," grinned BDNA Chair Chelsea Powers.
"All of volunteers who put this on are glad to see it's really well attended, in fact, far better than the last years," Powers told THE BEE. "And this year, we had our Trunk-or-Treat decoration competition. It's a very friendly competition where we have a silly trophy that is awarded for the best display and theme!"
This year, Erik Benton and Thom Schoenborn won that trophy for their interactive "scare box of candy"; the runner up was Grant and Berta William, for their spookily decorated SUV hatchback.
Before the afternoon was over, some 100 folks came by to enjoy this fun and not-so-scary event.
