Family-friendly event now in its seventh year

 

Bring the whole family and have fun while learning how to stay safe this Halloween during the seventh annual Trunk or Treat Safety Event. The family-friendly event will be held at the Cumming Fairgrounds on Saturday, October 22, from 6 to 9 p.m. Admission is one family-sized bag of candy per family.

Children are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes to Trunk or Treat, which will feature a variety of fun activities and games. There will also be information on costume safety, pedestrian safety, stranger danger, stop-drop-roll demonstrations and more.

              

“Forsyth County’s public safety personnel take great pride in engaging with our community’s youth through events such as Trunk or Treat,” said Fire Chief Danny Bowman. “Trunk or Treat is not only a fun event for the children, but it is also an excellent opportunity to share with families important safety information surrounding Halloween activities.”

 

This will mark the second year the event will be held at the Cumming Fairgrounds in downtown Cumming.

 

“The Cumming Fairgrounds provides a great centralized location for this event, and the space available at the Fairgrounds also enables us to continue to grow the event each year,” said Division Chief Jason Shivers.

 

While safety remains the focus of the event, the Forsyth County Fire Department is also
inviting local businesses and nonprofit organizations to participate. Those interested in taking part must apply by Monday, October 10. There are two ways to participate ­– by having a trunk, where candy is handed out to children from the decorated trunk of a vehicle, or by having a booth, where a free interactive activity or giveaway is available for children in attendance. For more information regarding participation, please contact Fire Prevention Officer Robert Taylor at (770) 205-4688.

 

The Cumming Fairgrounds is located at 235 Castleberry Road in Cumming.
