Staff Writer: Ximena Rojas

Woodstock High School students and staff have been entertaining everyone with these fun events to attend. On October 26th, 2022, there will be the annual Trunk or Treat of the year. It is held in the Woodstock High School parking lot and will be from 5-7 PM. This event is held by SGA yearly while they also create other fun activities for students here at Woodstock High school.  

What is Trunk or Treat?  

Trunk or treat is an alternative to trick or treating and is much safer depending on where the event is held. Trunk or treat allows kids to collect candy at the trunks of cars. Usually people bring their trucks/and or cars to the parking lot of the place it is at. The trunks are decorated by the family or person who owns the car. Sometimes people even have games there for kids to play and enjoy. Instead of going door to door, parents find it easier to collect candy, trunk to trunk. This annual event began in] the 1990’s and was created by church groups. Their intentions in creating a trunk or treat was to create a safer environment for kids and make it less “evil.” They believed it was a better alternative to Halloween activities. It was named “Fall Festival” at first but then got its name “Trunk or Treating” 20 years later. Trunk or treat has been a tradition here at Woodstock High School since 2017. It allows students from elementary school to high-school, and even younger students to collect candy in a safe environment. Trunk or Treat at Woodstock is supervised by administrators and teachers to keep an eye out for everyone just for safety reasons. 

Amazingly decorated trunk 

On October 26th. 2022, lots of people attended the Trunk or Treat at Woodstock High-school. Trunk or Treat started at 5 in the afternoon and ended around 7:20 PM. There were food trucks, bouncy houses, ring toss, face painting and even a costume contest.  

Some of the food trucks had donuts, Tacos, and fries. There were also popsicles and other treats. Most of the food/ desserts ranged from $3-$20 making it affordable and tasty for everyone to enjoy.  

The trunks on Wednesday looked outstanding. Each trunk was decorated based on a theme which was either spooky or just fun. Some of the trunks were attended by a club or class here at Woodstock.
