Want to look like you just got back from Studio 54 and make little kids happy at the same time? Tapesty Covenant Church on the Hilltop is looking for some folks to dress up in ’70s attire and distribute candy to trick-or-treaters from the trunk of their cars.

They’re still looking for 10-20 cars to make it possible. If interested, contact Don Ruzicka at Ruzickaregion@aol.com.

Here’s more information about the event:

Tapestry Covenant Church (on the northwest corner of Ninth and MLK) is holding the second-annual Trick or Trunk event on Halloween night. Last year, it involved 23 cars and about 200 children. The cars (and sometimes their drivers) were decorated (optional) and each, with open trunks provided a safe alternative to conventional trick or treating.

Participants dispense their candy from containers within their trunks.

This year the group has selected a theme for decorations – “The 70s” – and prizes will be given to the best decorated car. There are also plans for a bonfire.

Police and Fire will be on hand to ensure safety, please consider participating and/or bringing your children by. The event will be held in the vacant lot on the southwest corner of 8th and MLK.
