Information about Trick or Trunk in Oxford on Halloween night!

On Wednesday, October 31st - Halloween Night,  Oxford Parks and Recreation is once again offering a fun, safe alternative to the traditional trick or treat.  Instead of walking endlessly from house to house, come join our 10th annual “Trick or Trunk”!  Bring your car (only 1 car per family, please) and your kids to Oxford High School by 6:00pm.  Park the car and decorate your trunk.    The parents can sit out in your lawn chairs and watch your children as they safely trick or treat from car to car, while you also hand out candy to those visiting your trunk.  There will be prizes for best decorated trunks in various categories.  There will be spooky, kooky music and yummy refreshments for all. This event is open to all Oxford children (up to 5th grade) and their families. This event is free for Oxford residents, but each family is asked to bring one carved jack-o-lantern per car to be added to our tower of lit jack-o-lanterns.  Please be sure there’s a candle in each pumpkin.  We will light them once we place them on the tower.  There will also be prizes for the best carved jack-o-lanterns. You must arrive early because no cars will be allowed to enter or depart the parking lot between 6 and 7:30pm  All of the front parking lots will be used.  Sorry, no walk ins will be allowed.  All children must be accompanied by an adult, all adults must be accompanied by their child(ren).

 We are using the largest parking lot we can find.  Please do not arrive in multiple cars as the spaces are extremely limited.  All cars entering the lots must decorate.  Also – because of the space limitations, this event must be for Oxford residents only.  Be prepared to show proof of residence upon entrance.

 There is no rain date for this event.  Call the Parks and Rec office 203 888-2543, Ext 3041 after 3:00 pm on the day of the event if there’s any question about the possibility of a weather cancellation.  There will be a recording to keep you informed.

 Please call the Parks and Recreation Department, 888-2543, Ext 3041 or e-mail parkandrec@oxford-ct.gov  for more information.  You can also read more about it by going to OxfordRec.com.
