The Virginia Museum of History & Culture (VMHC) and 24 other local organizations will present Halloween fun at the inaugural Trunk or Treat community event that will take place at the museum on Oct. 27
Participating partners will decorate the trunks of their vehicles for Halloween, load up on candy and other free giveaways, and set up in the VMHC parking lot for kids to safely “trick or treat” from vehicle to vehicle. There will also be crafts, games, food trucks, Halloween movies, rides on an outdoor trackless train, chocolate making demos, and free museum admission, which includes access to the museum’s newest exhibition “Apollo: When We Went to the Moon.”
“We are delighted to have so many local partners willing to come together to host a Trunk or Treat event for families in the community,” Jamie Bosket, president and CEO at the Virginia Museum of History & Culture said in a statement. “We encourage families to come out and explore their state history museum in a fun and festive way.”
The Trunk or Treat event will take place on Friday, Oct. 27, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Virginia Museum of History & Culture. The event is free, but registration is requested. For more information, please visit VirginiaHistory.org/Events.
