Halloween may have been filled with rain but luckily for Williamston residents there was an indoor alternative. The Williamston First Baptist Church held its annual Trunk-or-Treat inside to combat the unpredictable Michigan weather.
Pastor Dan Cavin said that this is about the eighth year that the church has held the Trunk-or-Treat.The first five years were outside and the past three have been inside because the weather has been so bad.
For members and non-members alike the church offers Halloween festivities. “We have cider and donuts. Everything is free, members of the church bring candy and pass it out. We also have face painting and other activities for the kids. In the Old Testament, Joseph has the coat of many colors so we have a guy wearing a coat of many pockets. The pockets are filled with little trinkets and the kids get to reach into his pockets and help themselves,” said Cavin.
Luana Fuller and JoAnn Frazier have been helping at the event for seven years, passing out cider and donuts. “I have relatives that are from the Lansing and East Lansing area that come here because it’s safer for families,” said Fuller. “It’s also nice because it gets the parents more involved.”
“My favorite part is looking at all of the costumes,” said Frazier, “Plus it’s good to see people you haven’t seen in a while.”
For families with young children the Trunk-or-Treat is a way to go. “The last three years we’ve had really bad weather and the kids love dressing up, so this is perfect,” said Jamie Radbach. “The kids like this more, plus we live in the country so it’s better to come to this.”
