Alternative Trick or Treating in Southern Maryland

Not looking forward to joining the mobs of parents and children running from door to door on Halloween night? Trunk or treating is considered a safe alternative to trick or treating where community members and organizations meet up in a parking lot (think churches, schools, etc), fill the trunk of their vehicle with candy and pass it out as trunk or treaters come by. These events are sometimes held during daylight hours and on more convenient days (like Saturdays). This is a great alternative to traiditional trick or treating as kids can get all of their candy in a localized place by trusted community members.  More and more shopping centers and businesses are also taking part in the non-Halloween night festivities by inviting families to trick-or-treat at stores and restaurants. This Halloween falls on a Monday, so if you aren’t into hiking around the neighborhood on a school night, check out this list of alternative trick or treat spots and dates in our area!
