One of the ways to celebrate the spooky season or fall festival season is by attending trunk or treats.

What is a trunk or treat?

Trunk or treats have become more popular over the years.  An organization will put together a group of people who decorate their cars, mainly their trunks or the backends of their SUVs.  They set up in parking lots and kids come and trick or treat.

Some people think this is a safer way to trick or treat rather than go door to door to collect candy.

Many trunk or treats in the Texas Panhandle are hosted by churches or other organizations.  However, some go all out and host car shows, festivals with vendors and much more.

Fall Festivals are another fun event where churches or groups hold a carnival type of event that has games and activities.

If you are looking for some great events to take the kids to this year to dress up in their costumes and pick up a ton of candy, here are the trunk or treats in our area.

These events are great because they are all located in one location, and you don't have to walk multiple blocks and go house to house to get a ton of candy.  It's one of the fun things to do in Amarillo during this time of year.  It also allows your kids to get dressed up multiple times to enjoy the holiday.
