ROCKFORD, Illinois (WIFR) – Some trick or treating took a head start on the Halloween holiday during a trunks or treats event at the Tinker Swiss Cottage Museum.
This is the third year of the event but due to the coronavirus guidelines things have been done a little differently than in the past. During a typical trunk-or-treat, cars park in line with open trunks and candy ready, but organizers turn the event into a ride-by-event with distant cars and trick-or-treating that stays in their cars instead of walking.
“I am very grateful that this year the Winnebago County Department of Health was able to issue guidelines for the trunk or treatment that we were able to follow. But overwhelming families are still very grateful that they still have something to do as a family, ”said Samantha Hochmann, executive director of the Tinker Swiss Cottage Museum.
Trunk or Treat is a free community event, and the organizers are hoping things can get back to normal next year.
