TUKWILA (Oct. 6, 2021) — Get ready for the Halloween Trunk or Treat!
This fun family event featuring food, raffles, music, and of course, candy is open to all and will begin at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 31 in the parking lot of the Teamsters Hall, 14675 Interurban Blvd. in Tukwila. It is sponsored by the Pacific NW Teamsters National Black Caucus, MLK Labor, Access 2, WA YELL, and the Washington State Labor Council, AFL-CIO.
Trunk or Treat is an event, typically held in a parking lot, in which a group of trusted adults decorate the trunks of their cars for Halloween and pass out candy to our labor families and community. It makes for a safer environment (and less walking) and allows hosts to provide even more fun. This year’s event will also have a community career fair.
So make plans to dress up in your favorite costume for a Halloween afternoon/evening of fun while families trunk or treat from decorated vehicles.
Here’s what you need to know:
HOST A VEHICLE — Your “trunk” can be simple or elaborate… it’s up to you. As you’re dreaming up ideas, consider your trunk as the stage on which you will perform in your coordinating costume with fun scene settings and props. Representing a union, perhaps a theme in support of your local would be fun. Need inspiration? A quick image search of “Trunk or Treat” shows dozens of possibilities. Register your Trunk or Treat vehicle here.
WHAT TO BRING — When selecting treats for “Trick-or-Treaters,” candy (pre-wrapped and sealed) is an obvious choice, but other favorite treats include pencils, pens, erasers, glow sticks, bracelets, bookmarks, stickers, notepads, bouncy balls, and fake tattoos. Be prepared to accommodate approximately 600 children. (Organizers will will have additional candy as needed.)
SPREAD THE WORD — Please join us and invite your union siblings and their families. Download, print and post this Trunk or Treat 2021 flyer at your union hall or workplace. Share the Facebook event page and RSVP there.
