Afternoon holiday party in city has fun and safety in mind
VERGENNES — The Vergennes American Legion Auxiliary Unit 14 will be hosting a Halloween Costume Karaoke Dance Party on Sunday, Oct. 27, from 1-2 p.m. at the American Legion in Vergennes, followed by Trunk or Treat in the parking lot from 2-3 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.
Trunk or Treat is a safe alternative to trick-or-treating and is done in a roped off area of the parking lot of the American Legion Post 14 in Vergennes. Parents and community members will register to bring their cars and candy to distribute from their decorated trunk. Kids will be led to the parking area and will begin going car to car for treats. This is great for people who live out of town and don’t get trick-or-treaters or anyone with ambulatory issues. It is also great way for people to promote their business, civic organization or church. It is done in the daylight and children will be home before dark.
To register a vehicle for Trunk or Treat, contact Martha DeGraaf at 877-9986 or email [email protected]. Participants are responsible for their own candy, treats and decorations.
