    Trunk or Treat @ Proctor Center

    Come celebrate Halloween the fun, safe way at Proctor Center’s Trunk or Treat. We will block off an entire block around Proctor, put cars together,  then open the trunks to reveal Halloween-themed decorations. Kids can walk from trunk to trunk to look at the decorations and receive candy and treats. This event provides a controlled and safe family environment for trick-or-treaters ages 1 to 14.

    We encourage parents to provide candy to other trick or treaters from their trunk as well.
