Community Fun in a Safe Environment

This year, our annual Trunk or Treat  will be held with the East Texas Crisis Center. Trunk or Treat provides members of the Tyler community an alternative to traditional trick-or-treating in a fun and safe environment. 


Sunday, October 22, 2023

Time: 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm (or until all candy is gone, which ever is first)

Location: Parking Lots 7-8  (around  R. Don Cowan Fine and Performing Arts Center area and exiting at the North Entrance)

This year, Trunk or Treat  will be a walk through event! Volunteers will give out candy from the trunk of decorated cars and have fun games and activities for children to participate in. 

Parking can be found in Lots 6, 9, and 10 which are adjacent to the event. 

Our Co-sponsor, the East Texas Crisis Center manages the registration of all vehicles participating in the event. Generally, we ask that all cars be registered and have no more than 4-5 people per carload. We will take as many cars as as have space, but organizations are allowed multiple vehicles. We also ask that cars bring 4-6 bags of candy to start with and then we will supplement with what we have on hand. 

The event will end at 7 pm or when all candy has been given out, whichever happens first. 

To register a car for the event, please visit Eventbrite.
