Hundreds trunk-or-treat at Cedar Rapids' Salvation Army

Posted: Updated:

Kids and adults of all ages joined the Cedar Rapids Salvation Army for some safe Halloween fun.

The Salvation Army’s Trunk or Treat event brought hundreds out in costume going from trunk-to-trunk filling their buckets with lots of candy.

Kids could decorate their own cookies, make their own arts and crafts, among other fun activities.

“This brings them all into an area where they know their friends are going to be and other people in their community are going to be,” said development and communications director Lia Pontarelli with the Cedar Rapids Salvation Army. “So it's not just about the candy, but it's about spending time with other people in their neighborhood.”

Organizers say they expected at least 300 people.

Kids say they love coming to get candy and hang out with their friends, even before the actual day of Halloween.
