The center is once again sponsoring the Halloween Trunk or Treat event from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Oct. 31 at the Old Spanish Trail Arena.
According to Sherilynn Sowell, the center has a goal of trying to get a total of 60 stops along the trail for the trunk or treaters. It does not have to be a vehicle. It can be a booth, a haunted tent, a hot dog stand, a tractor, a motorcycle or a lawn chair.
Those who choose to bring a vehicle can decorate the trunk elaborately, simply or not at all. “The children just like to fill those bags up with treats,” Sowell said.
People who need to set up earlier in the day can do so and return by 3:30 p.m. “If you can’t be there but would like to donate, either treats or money would be very helpful. Last year several spots ran out of treats earlier as there were approximately 1,400 children there,” she said.
Email for a registration at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 435-260-0147 to obtain one.
Anyone wanting to assist in getting families with no means of transportation to the event can call the same number.
There is no cost to anyone. For anyone wanting to participate, plan on serving 1,500 children. “We hope to see most of Moab there; tourists are welcome and businesses are encouraged to set up a trunk or booth,” she said.
