Trunk-or-Treat a Crestone Halloween tradition for kids

By Deana Wilfong

The annual Crestone Halloween Trunk-or-Treat is on. If you love being creative, enjoy delight in a child’s face, or just like to play, please consider joining us downtown on Tuesday, Oct. 31, starting at 5 p.m. 

Kids start coming out at 5 p.m., so come early to set up and find your spot. Then, we all hang out downtown for some Halloween fun.

As part of the usual trick-or-treat scene in the downtown area with businesses and houses, you can decorate your car, dress up, or just keep it simple and provide extra stops for the kids. 

Park around town: In front of the Eagle, the Crestone Artisans Gallery, the Post Office, the Mercantile, the Elephant Cloud, or T Road Brewing. Grab a few friends and make clusters around town tailgate-style; as the kids go door to door, they can also go car to car. 

Please be prepared for the kids to go around the block a few times, as we live in a small town. 

Elaine at the Crestone Mercantile is once again prepared to accept donations and help out those who want to play but may not have the means to purchase candy. Stop by and speak with her if you need candy, and please support the cause by donating. 

A donation jar is at check out. You are a creative bunch, so here’s your chance to dive into some creativity!
