Newport News Fire Department Holds Trunk or Treat Benefit

Posted on October 27, 2016 at 8:26 AM by Communications Department

On Saturday, October 29, from 12:00 to 4:00 PM join the Newport News Fire Department at their Trunk or Treat event being held at the Newport News Fire Training Facility, 17300 Warwick Boulevard. Trunk or Treat is a Halloween event where people gather and park their cars in a large parking lot, open their decorated trunks, and pass out candy. The event provides a safe family environment for trick-or-treaters. There will be candy, games, and a bounce house. Prizes will be awarded to families for the best decorated trunks and kid costumes. 10_27_TRUNK-or-TREAT-2016_sc

This event benefits public service members’ spouses who are battling breast cancer, and the Fire Department will have a donation box, raffles, t-shirts and food available for a donation. The Virginia Breast Cancer Foundation will be on-site to provide information about the disease. It is a great way for the children to have a safe fun Saturday and aid a much needed benefit at the same time. According to event coordinator Lt. Amy Snead, “A Trunk or Treat is similar to trick-or-treating in your own neighborhood, but the houses are so much closer!”

Pre-registration is required for a parking space to have your trunk on display and can be done by emailing
