Our local YMCA's have a spooktacular night of trick or treating in store for you and your family.

On Friday, October 28th from 6-8pm, the Gleason Family YMCA in Wareham wants to and your family to go trunk to trunk collecting candy in a safe, friendly environment.  The very next night, the New Bedford YMCA invites you to come out and do the same from 3p - 5p.  Both events cost just $3 per child.

But what exactly is Trunk N' Treating?  It's a fun way to turn your car into a creature for the night and dish candy out of the trunk! Trunk N' Treats are fun ways to get the family outdoors for a traditional trick or treating experience without the worry of crossing busy streets.

Want to get involved? The YMCA is always looking for people (and cars) to sign up for this event. So whether your a local business looking to get your name out there or just want to do something nice for the community, give your local YMCA a call and see how you can participate.

Both events will award prizes for the best costume and the best decorated vehicle. For more information visit www.ymcasouthcoast.org
