Trunk or Treat Halloween fun!

The annual Crestone Halloween Trunk or Treat downtown is on! If you love being creative, enjoy delight in a child’s face or just like to play, please consider joining us on Sunday October 31 starting at 5:30pm downtown. Kids start coming out at 5:30pm so come before to set up and find your spot. Then we all hangout downtown for some Halloween fun! 

As part of the usual trick or treat scene in the downtown area with business and houses, you can decorate your car, dress up or just keep it simple and provide extra stops for the kids. Park around town, in front of the Eagle, the Post Office, the Merc, the Cloud. Grab a few friends and make clusters around town, tailgate-style and as the kids go door to door they can also go car to car. These kids have been through so much, let’s do it up right! Plus, a little creative fun would do you good too! Think outside the box. Get imaginative. 

Please also think of how you can help include others. If you have young kids and you want to walk with them, offer a friend some treats to hand out on your behalf. Sponsor an elder who wants to see the kids and may need some help getting something to hand out. Decorate your car for a neighbor or just stand on the sidewalk with a bag of treats. 

The more stops the better!

Once again the Crestone Merc is stepping up to help! Have some funds to contribute? Stop by the Merc and Elaine will use those funds to buy candy wholesale! Need some candy so that you can participate? Stop by the Merc and pick up some of the candy that’s been donated. Let’s fill those sidewalks with kids and kids at heart! 

Come downtown hungry! This year the Crestone Charter School will be downtown with a fundraiser. Bring some cash and show your support! Between the school and other options in the works you can have dinner outside with your friends, checking out the costumes and enjoying the crisp evening air. 

You are a creative bunch. So here’s your chance to dive into some creativity. We may have taken a year off, but we’re coming back strong!
