GREAT FALLS — On Saturday evening, Kiwanis Club of Great Falls unloaded a brand new event into the Salvation Army Parking Lot.
Former Kiwanis Club president Nadine Preston was driven to start a new seasonal tradition for the kids in the community.
Preston said she saw a large turnout at their first-ever trunk or treat event. “There were kids everywhere, it was great!”
This free festivity is part of Kiwanis' mission to serve children all over the world. “This is Kiwanis' goal, to love the kids, take care of kids, help kids, and have fun,” Preston said.
For hours, costumed kids braved the chilly October conditions as they went trunk to trunk for treats and voted on their favorite trunks.
From a Hocus Pocus presentation to a literal lady VW bug, drivers went the extra mile with their car displays. And candy wasn't the only treat on hand. The Salvation Army also served up hot cocoa to keep the volunteers and trunk or treaters warm.
