Kinera Trunk-or-treat event set for Oct. 29
STEVENSVILLE — Kinera Foundation Eastern Shore Regional Hub will host its annual Trunk-or-Treat event from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 29, in the parking lot at 115 Sallitt Drive, Stevensville, located at the Chesapeake Bay Business Park. This event is free and open to the public.
Kinera’s Trunk-or-Treat will kick off at 2 p.m. with a sensory-friendly trick-ortreating experience tailored for families with children with special needs and disabilities.
Local businesses and organizations will have table displays and vehicle trunks decorated in the Halloween style, and participants will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite vendor display. Trick-or-treaters are encouraged to wear Halloween costumes and will be able to participate in the crafts and games station, as well as trick-or-treating at the vendors’ tables for treats and giveaways. The sensory-friendly portion of the event will last through 3 p.m.
Beginning at 3 p.m., the Trunk-or-Treat will open to the general public to offer a prelude to the Halloween evening or an alternative to door-to-door trick-or-treating.
Snacks and drinks will be available for sale and all proceeds will benefit the Kinera Foundation. There will be a kids corner with crafts and games, and local DJ Dalton will be providing the music. In addition to the Kinera Foundation sponsoring the event, there will be other sponsors, including local businesses and organizations.
