10 Trunk or Treat Events in Los Angeles – Now with Map!

Trunk or Treat. No, we didn’t spell that wrong. There are many Trunk or Treat events in Los Angeles, and if you’ve never been, you may want to try one this year – they sound like a blast!

Often hosted by churches and community groups, a Trunk or Treat is an alternative to Trick-or-Treating door-to-door. People volunteer to park their cars, decorate their trunks, and give out candy to kids in costume. Some of these events require a ticket purchase, and some are free.

Some of these fun Halloween celebrations even have food trucks, craft projects, costume contests and prizes for the best-decorated trunks. Enjoy Trunk or Treating this year!
