Where to Trunk-or-Treat in Birmingham (2022)
Taking an unguided, terror-fueled tour of a scary haunted house isn’t for everyone. If you don’t want your kids to sleep in your bed for the next 2 weeks, you might want to find other, less traumatizing Halloween activities for the family.
Sounds like trunk-or-treating is in your future! As an alternative to trick-or-treating around the neighborhood, a trunk-or-treat gives your kiddos every opportunity to fill up their bags with nutritious, healthy, 100% natural goodies. Just kidding—it’s candy, of course! Chocolate. Gummies. Suckers. Everything dentists hate will be grabbed by the handful and brought back home with you. (Exciting, isn’t it?)
