Drive-thru Trunk or Treat

Splitting off from our annual Fall Fun Festival, parents will be able to drive their children through the parking lot making stops at community groups who will be passing out candy and other goodies. In order to partake in the event please enter off of Broadway and exit off of Mission Drive (right turn only). 

We encourage children to come dressed in their favorite costumes and show that Halloween spirit by decorating the exterior of your car.
