Staff Parking Lot @ College Park Elementary
3700 Chaparral Ave, Irvine, CA 92606
Come join us for a fun evening of trick-or-treating!
We'll have a live DJ, games, prizes, food*, and more!
Want to bring your vehicle and pass out candy at the trunk-or-treat?
Want to help with 6th grade pizza sales?
* While supplies last!
WHAT IS TRUNK-OR-TREAT?
Participants go and bring their cars to a central location -- in this case, our College Park Elementary Staff Parking Lot. The drivers and their families decorate their cars for Halloween, sometimes creating elaborate scenes out of their trunks (though not required!). Then kids walk from vehicle to vehicle, collecting candy the way they would during a normal trick-or-treating outing. Note that attendees are not required to bring and decorate their cars -- just the participants that wish to do so. Families can simply attend and trick-or-treat and enjoy the festivities without bringing their vehicles on site and passing out candy.
WHO CAN ATTEND THIS EVENT?
All College Park Elementary students, families, staff, friends, neighbors, and community members are welcome.
HOW MUCH DOES THIS EVENT COST?
This is a free event sponsored by College Park PTA -- no admission cost.
Our 6th Grade Class of 2024 Committee will be selling $5.00 pizza, cookies, and water combos, so bring some cash and your appetites! Proceeds will help to raise funds for their 6th grade promotion ceremony and activities at the end of this school year. Cash only, no bills over $20, please.
