Trunk or Treat - New!

Typically on Halloween, kids and adults dress up in costumes, some people decorate their homes and front lawns, but what about vehicles?

Trunk or Treat Information 

That’s right! We are looking for Halloween enthusiasts that will decorate their trunk and bring their fabulous vehicle to Aurora’s Haunted Greenhouse for display, or as we like to call it “Trunk or Treat”. Open your trunk, pull out your random decorations and create a cool display.

Vehicles will be set up in the “Treat Street” section of the Joint Operations Centre parking lot. Thank you to the Hobbs family who spent a day decorating a variety of scenes with the trunk of their vehicle. This is a great way to spend some family time, getting fresh air all while being safe.

If you want to participate, please email Shelley Ware by October 18. All entries will be eligible to win prizes in the form of gift cards, based on votes from the public.

If you want to participate but need ideas, do not fear as the Special Events team is here! Reach out and we will brainstorm together.
