Attalla Parks and Rec to host Trunk or Treat on Halloween


By Jacqueline Chandler/Messenger Correspondent

The City of Attalla Parks and Recreation Department will host its second annual Trunk or Treat Friday, Oct. 31, from 5 -7p.m. at the Carnes Community Center gymnasium. The first year the event drew over 400 youths from surrounding communities. This number is expected to rise this year.

Vendors from local businesses will set up tables free of charge to spread information about their business while providing treats to the children of the community. This event is a wonderful way to allow kids to participate in trick or treating in a safe environment and is especially nice for parents of young children who might not wish to take them into neighborhoods. It’s also a perfect stop on the way to church events and other fall festivals in the area.  

The event is free for children. A designated area for pictures will be set up, so parents are encouraged to bring a camera and take a picture of their children. 

Many vendors will be dressed in Halloween costumes and tables will be decorated in the Halloween spirit. 

The event is an opportunity for businesses looking to engage in the community and get to know the people who support their businesses. Community involvement is a valuable part of sustainability for any organization, as well as a needed priority for everyone. 

Any business wishing to participate is asked to call 256-538-3712 for more information or drop by the office at Carnes Community Center and fill out a registration form. Tables will be provided.
