TRUNK-or-TREAT is an OPTIONAL event. You, obviously, may come for just the movies.

 

TIMELINE: 2:00 Gates open for TRUNK-or-TREAT setup. (You may come to set up whenever you like.) ** 6:00 Gates open for general public (First 2 rows reserved for TRUNK-or-TREAT vehicles to set up or those who would like to hand out candy.) ** 6:30 Deadline to register for prizes ** 6:30 TRUNK-or-TREAT begins ** 6:30 Halloween cartoons will play to enjoy during TRUNK-or-TREAT & for those not participating. ** 7:00 Approximate movie start

 

First 2 rows reserved for vehicles setting up for TRUNK-or-TREAT or wanting to hand out candy. (Please pre-register at longdrivein2@gmail.com so we know how many are interested in handing out candy.) People will be allowed to move forward to the front 2 rows after TRUNK-or-TREAT has finished.

 

October 14 & 15 **Right now this weekend is looking like NICE WEATHER for our TRUNK-or-TREAT. Dry and 60's! (The following weekend (21,22) may be used as backup in case of rain but it is not looking like we will not need backup.)**

 

**NEW this year: PUMPKIN CARVING CONTEST for the kids**

**PLEASE READ "NEW THIS YEAR" section below.**

 

WE INVITE YOU TO GET CREATIVE, DRESS UP, HAVE FUN, AND JOIN US FOR OUR 3RD ANNUAL TRUNK-or-TREAT!! If you have never attended a TRUNK-or-TREAT, the kids (and pets) may dress up in costume and go trunk-or-treating car to car!

 

PRIZES will be awarded for the best vehicle displays which will include a GRAND PRIZE WINNER of a 2017 season pass to The Long Drive-In! To be eligible for prizes, your car display must be set up and registered in concessions by 6:30.

 

**NEW THIS YEAR. Please read.**

 

**Please email us AT longdrivein2@gmail.com if you plan on decorating a vehicle, OR HANDING OUT CANDY, so we have an idea of numbers. We want to make sure we have enough space up front reserved for anyone wanting to decorate, or just hand out candy to the kids.**

 

**We are asking EVERYONE PARTICIPATING please bring a small bag of sealed candy to contribute. Predicting attendance, and amount of candy to bring, is difficult for those putting together displays or handing out candy. If everyone brings a small amount it takes out all the guess work and things run smoothly**

 

**We will have a "collection bowl" inside the concessions for those participating, but not decorating. Those decorating are asked to bring enough candy to cover 300 children. If they run out they can then come in and get more candy from the reserve. This event is growing and this system will help tremendously in taking out the guess work on how much candy to bring**

 

**PUMPKIN CARVING CONTEST * The kids are asked to bring in a carved pumpkin for display in front of concessions. The Jack-o-lanterns will be lit up and numbered so everyone in attendance can enjoy their halloween creations and VOTE for their favorite! (All pumpkins will go home with the kids after the show.)

The PRIZE will be several FREE CHILDS PASSES to The Long Drive-In! (number of passes we hand out will depend on how many pumpkins are submitted)

**WINNERS will be announced at intermission**

 

We are hopeful those that come to have their kids join Trunk or Treat will also join in the event to make this a fun and memorable event for all. Last year's event was a blast for both the kids that dressed up to TRUNK-or-TREAT and the parents that did such an absolutely AMAZING job decorating their vehicles. **Also for the Drive-In staff who enjoyed watching all the witches, ghosts, & goblins coming through the lobby doors all night!

 

If you have never attended a TRUNK-or-TREAT, please run a search on "Trunk or Treat", or scroll through the albums we've included on our FACEBOOK page from our previous event .... they are soooo much FUN!)

 

REPEAT TIMELINE: 12:00 Gates open for TRUNK-or-TREAT setup.
