A twist on Trunk-or-Treat Street 2020


This Thursday, Oct. 29th, FCCLA is putting on their annual Trick-or-Treat Street, but with a small twist. From 4:00-7:00p.m., Trunk-or-Treat Street will feature different HRHS clubs and athletics with decorated car trunks and candy for the community this Halloween season. Parents and visitors should park in the staff parking lot. The clubs and groups participating will be in the student parking lot. 

In the past, Trick-or-Treat Street has been a fundraiser and FCCLA has been able to donate the proceeds, but with the current pandemic, this year is more of an event for the community. “We are just trying to put on an event to help the spirit and morale of our community this year more so than anything,” said Shannon Wessels, FCCLA adviser. 

“All the clubs are going to be decorating car trunks with a Halloween theme, people can dress up in costumes, and we can’t necessarily hand kids candy, so we have to put it on tables for them to pick up,” said Ally Demith, senior.

“The unique part of Trick-or-Treat Street in the past used to be playing games,” said Wessels. However, this year to stay safe and still have fun, students are planning creative and fun ways to give out the candy. Some students are planning to use PVC pipe to slide candy into kids’ baskets.

There are currently 36 activities signed up to participate in passing out candy. Senate adviser Brad Odice said, “Each senate cohort is decorating a trunk, so we’ll have 8 total. My students have made decorations, bagged candy, and prepared our costumes already.”

Trunk-or-Treat is one of the few public gatherings that’s allowed to take place this fall. “We had to apply through the governor’s office in August for what is called a ‘variance.’ It took a lot of high schools working together to try and get the variance approved in order to put this on,” said Wessels. 

According to Wessels, one step being taken to prevent the spread of the virus is having the students and visitors on opposite sides of tables, and only 4-5 people at a table. Visitors will also slowly enter in separate groups through the choir tent. 

Masks are mandatory for participation and there will be sanitizing stations setup. Students will also wear gloves to pass the candy out.
