Kids have fang-tastic time at trunk-or-treat and maze
CLEVELAND — Woody from “Toy Story,” witches, a caveman and other Halloween characters trunk-or-treated at Third Creek Presbyterian Church in Cleveland on Wednesday night.
The festivities started about seven years ago and have expanded every year, according to Pam Horne.
“We do get a lot of kids,” Horne said. “They just keep on coming.”
This year, trunk-or-treat included an a-MAZE-ing and spooky maze at the picnic shelter. It was made by members of Boy Scout Troop 380 with cardboard. Inside kids could navigate through the maze while reading “Do you feel a chill?” and “Are you afraid of the dark?” on the walls until they found the end and were greeted with a fire pit and s’mores.
Freda Snyder has attended Third Creek Presbyterian her whole life and has decorated her car to pass out candy since the trunk-or-treat began.
She said she enjoys seeing the kids from other churches who come to the Third Creek summer programs come back to trunk-or-treat.
Snyder said she brings about 700 pieces of candy to pass out and an extra bag in case she runs out.
Jane Hampton said she loves the reactions from the kids, adding she likes decorating her trunk but in the end it’s for the kids.
As 140 hot dogs were eaten and hundreds of pieces of candy passed out. Horne said they were already looking toward next year. The Boy Scouts want to make a scary version of the maze as well.
