Organization in belmont, Harrison and Monroe counties will host trunk or treat events and other Halloween activities in the coming weeks with the first taking place today.

The first trunk or treat of the season will be hosted by the Bellaire Planning Committee from 6-7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Bellaire City Park. Trunk or treat organizers and adult participants often decorate the trunks of the cars in a holiday theme and pass out candy to children who are usually in costume. The practice was started as a potentially safer alternative to trick-or-treating and has gained popularity in recent years.

On Thursday, The Experience Church will host its annual Rock the Pumpkin trunk or treat from 6-8 p.m. at Bridgeport High School. The church will provide candy for all vehicles that participate. The free event will also feature food trucks and temporary tattoos.

The village of Holloway will be having trunk or treat at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Holloway Old Timers property. The event will feature a trunk contest and a costume contest. Trunk or treat will be held in conjunction with the Holloway Methodist Church Fall Festival.

The church’s fall festival will take place from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday and will feature games and hayrides. During the activities, the church will also host a barbecue fundraiser from noon until food is sold out. The event will also feature an auction and a dessert table.

After the festival, a Halloween cake walk and dance sponsored by the Holloway Cadets will take place. The cake walk will be from 3:30-5 p.m., and the dance will take place from 6-10 p.m. at Glen Helter Pavilion.

Arbors at Woodsfield is partnering up with Trustwell Living for trick or treat and trunk or treat starting at 6 p.m. Oct. 19 at Westwood Place, located at 37950 Airport Road, Woodsfield. Vehicles will be decorated in the parking lot for trunk or treat, and residents will be handing out candy inside the facility. Refreshments will be provided.
