The Town of Bennett is excited to announce Trunk-or-Treat is returning this year but with a different look as a drive-thru event.
The event will take place on Thursday 29, 2020 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at Civic Center. Members of the public are asked to stay in their vehicles and drive through the Trunk-or-Treat trail to enjoy all the different decorated trunks. At the end of the trail, kids will receive a goody bag with Halloween candy and participants will also vote for their favorite decorated trunk.
In the light of COVID-19 related health and safety concerns, the drive-thru aims to limit contact and exposure.

The Town is looking for businesses, nonprofits, teams and residents to sign up to decorate a trunk. Prizes will be awarded to the team with the most votes for favorite trunk at the end of the event. There is no charge to participate as trunk but a donated bag of candy is requested. To sign up please email Lynette White at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like to support the event but cannot decorate a trunk, candy donations can be dropped at Town of Bennett Town Hall (207 Muegge Way, Bennett CO, 80102). Candy donations must be delivered by Monday, October 26, 2020.
The community is also invited to celebrate with the Town by decorating front porches, yards, patios or balconies. The Town will produce a virtual map with the locations of all registered porches so you can plan a walk or drive around Bennett to see and share in the celebration.
