First Congregational Church of Greenwich to Host “Trunk or Treat” Halloween Event Set for Saturday, Oct 23

On Saturday, October 23, the First Congregational Church of Greenwich, located at 108 Sound Beach Ave in Old Greenwich, will host its annual “Trunk or Treat” Halloween event in its parking lot between the hours of 6:00 and 8:00pm.

In this alternative to “Trick or Treating,” parents and children throughout the community are invited to come collect candy from the open, decorated car trunks of friends and neighbors in a fun and safe outdoor environment.

The event will feature food trucks, tons of candy and decorated cars in the church parking lot that will be closed off to traffic.  

“We are very excited for the safe return of this community event,” said Reverend Patrick Collins, Senior Pastor at First Church. “We look forward to seeing all the creative trunks and costumes.” 

Anyone interested in signing up for free to decorate their car for the event can fill out the signup form here: Community members interested in attending are also encouraged to sign up at the same URL, though signup isn’t a requirement for Trunk or Treaters.  

Admission is $10 per family, and proceeds will benefit a local charity. To learn more about Trunk or Treat, or the First Congregational Church of Greenwich, please visit
