Halloween in the Tri-Community usually means attending one of the community based "Trunk or Treats," fall festivals, or businesses for your tricks and treats.

A trunk-or-treat event was held on Halloween in the Parking lot of the Dollar Tree. The local community showed up with decorated vehicles and costumes, many choosing 80’s horror characters. The cars began lining up around 4:15pm, but it was not until after 5:00 that the majority arrived.

Mary Lou Urak attended the event with three great grandkids and says she helped spread the word on Facebook that it was taking place. “I told everybody get out there and don’t make the children suffer.” She was very happy with the turnout.

Robert Gordon is new to the High Desert and he showed up to the trunk-or -treat after his wife saw it advertised on the internet. In one of the cleverer decorations, he outfitted his trunk with a chute to hand out candy while maintaining a social distance. His son slid the candy down while dressed in a military uniform. Gordon decided to bring his family to hand out candy because “we had to do something. Where we are its kind of hard to go door to door.” Both he and his son agreed, the 80’s horror costumes were the most popular this year.
