Danby Halloween Trunk-or-Treat!

31 October @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

A smaller, community focused Halloween event providing a fun, safe and festive experience for spooks of all ages!

About this Event
What is a Trunk-or-Treat event?

The idea of TRUNK-or-treating was inspired by families who were interested in a safer or more convenient form of door-to-door trick-or-treating. Typically a trunk-or-treat event would take place in a school, church or community center parking lot. Parents and families would decorate their cars, come in costumes and hand out candy to other families.

OUR trunk-or-treat event will take place at our beloved Dotson Park (1825 Danby Rd, Ithaca NY 14850).

This event is FREE. Tickets options are “Trunk-or-Treat car” or “Participant”:

The “Trunk-or-Treat car” is for families or individuals who would like take part in decorating a car and handing out candy.
The “Participant” ticket is for anyone interested in simply going through the Trunk-or-Treat event.
IF you would like to decorate a car AND you have kids wanting to go through the Trunk-or-Treat event, PLEASE select BOTH the “Trunk-or-Treat car” ticket and appropriate number of “Participant” tickets.


Trunk-or-Treat participant expectations:

STAY WITH FAMILY UNIT; do not proceed to next car until previous family has moved on; move through the event promptly to prevent traffic jams. Caregivers are expected to monitor their children and remind them of the rules! Masks supported!

This event is short and sweet and ends at 6pm which is about sunset.

Questions can be emailed to Katharine at hkatharinehunter0@gmail.com

The Town of Danby sits on the traditional & ancestral land of the Gayogoho:no’ (Cayuga Nation), one of the five nations to first form the Haudenosaunee. Indigenous peoples were largely forced out of Upstate New York by the Sullivan-Clinton Expedition in 1779. The land that would become the Town of Danby was a part of the Watkins and Flint Purchase, a 336,380 acre patent granted by New York State to numerous eastern investors in 1794.
