A local hospital’s parking lot is packed with popular and original costumes alike for a candy and game frenzy.
Freeman Health System’s Sixth Trunk-Or-Treat event brought 2,500 employees and kids out for a pre-Halloween trunk-or-treat.
Departments from the hospital and first responders set-up games and prizes in their very own trunks for masses of kids to come by and enjoy.
It’s a way to thank hospital employees for their hard work throughout the year, and do something fun and festive for their families.
“It’s really rewarding for our team that puts this on. We really do plan this over a large period of time. A lot of logistics, a lot of planning goes into it. And so to see this many people show up, to see the smiles on the kids faces, to see our employees interacting with each other really goes a long way, it’s rewarding the work that we do,” says Freeman employee, Ryan Melton.
The event continues to grow every year, causing it to move to new locations to meet parking needs and crowd size.
This year it was held at Freeman East, and will likely be there again next year.
