Southlake DPS didn’t take any chances with the chance of rain for Halloween. So it hosted its Trunk-or-Treat event on Halloween eve.

There were costumes, candy and plenty of excitement on Tuesday at the event.

“We are new to town,” said new Southlake resident Honore Taylor. “So we are happy to have an organized event, considering the weather is going to be so terrible.”

The Halloween ‘team up’ pairs the Southlake Fire Department and the city’s DPS with community vendors to pass out treats for kids in a safe environment.

Vehicles opened their trunks to pass out candy to tiny characters on the move at the first Southlake Trunk or Treat.

“It’s safe. The rain tomorrow is going to be a hindrance,” said mom Stacey Bauer. “It’s a good place to let the kids run around. You don’t have to worry about the people. It’s a good event.”

Organizers hope to make the Trunk-or-Treat an annual event.
