Schools, churches and other organizations like to host trunk or treat events because it is a safe way for your kids to get their candy.

The events are well lit and full of responsible parents who can monitor the kids. Instead of walking from house to house, you’re in a regulated environment. If this sounds like something you want to do, look up your local events and get nice and inspired by these awesome designs below.
