Emergency services in Shelburne are joining together to offer children a safe alternative to trick-or-treating this Halloween with Trunk-or-Treat.
“The purpose of this event is to provide young trick or treaters a centralized and safe location to attend and obtain treats,” said Cpl. Darren Stevens with the Shelburne RCMP and coordinator of the event.
Stevens sent out an invitation to various emergency services throughout the area including the fire department, RCMP, EHS and other organizations to gather in the parking lot at the Shelburne fire station to hand out treats.
Lights will be flashing and treats handed out from the vehicle trunk or back door.
“It’s a great place for young children to safely get their treats all in one place,” said Stevens.
He said it was also a great event to be able to meet and greet one another outside of the work related atmosphere.
The event will be held at the Shelburne fire department parking lot at 63 King Street, Shelburne on Oct. 31 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
