What is Trunk-or-Treat?

It’s time for our most spook-tacular event of the year: Newtown Elementary’s Trunk-or-Treat Halloween party! Decorate your car to enter our trunk contest, or just come out in disguise to trick-or-treat. Once again, we'll have contests for our favorite costume and favorite trunk! DJ Tommy J has some special “tricks” up his sleeve, so we’re sure to have a be-witching evening!

There are two ways to join in the fun!
