For a safer alternative to regular trick or treating in the neighborhood, many local churches offer "trunk or treat" activites with carnival style games, face painting, and chili cook-off contests, etc. Volunteers will decorate their cars' trunks and the children can trick or treat in the parking lot. This way it's a one stop event and parents feel peace of mind and kids go home happy. So ask around your group of church-going friends if you don't already have somewhere in mind.
Every congregation of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will have a Trunk or Treat on Oct 30th starting at 6pm.
