It was all treats and no tips at Skidaway Island State Park on Saturday as they hosted their very first Trunk-or-Treat. “It’s a good mix of nature and Halloween spirit, it’s awesome,” said the Lupinek family who attended the event. At the event, people were able to enjoy carnival-style games, a pumpkin carving competition, a dog parade and more, while showing off their best costumes. Organizers told WJCL that they have decided to hold the event on a Saturday since Halloween falls on a school night this year. “We figured that hosting it on Saturday and packing a trunk or a treat gives people a chance to come out in the easiest way to socially distance themselves as much as possible with the trick or the treatment part,” Kaede Montooth said. , a Park Naturalist. For some children, it was the first time they had collected candy since the start of the pandemic. The Lupinek family said: “It’s really cool and I like that it’s still outside, just to keep the air fresh. I know the kids really like it because they haven’t had opportunity to cheat or deal last year, but now is the right time. It feels good. “At the end of the evening, everyone got to watch a movie together. Event organizers told WJCL they hoped to make it an annual tradition.
