Children Lining for Treats


at Riverdale Heights Elementary
Friday, October 15th

Join your Riverdale Heights community in celebrating Halloween! Parking spaces must be pre-reserved (they are free) so Reserve Your Spot NOW!  The last day to register for a parking spot is Thursday, 10/15 at NOON.

Arrive & Set-Up at pre-registered parking spots: 6:00pm - 6:45pm

TRUNK or TREAT - All Are Welcome! - 7:00pm - 8:00pm

I don’t understand... what is Trunk or Treat?

Trunk or Treat is when cars that have pre-registerd their parking spots come and set up their ‘trunks’ of their vehicles where they are open and hand out candy to trick or treaters that come to the event. If you register for a spot you come early to set up if not, you just come at the treating time.

Why do I have to register a parking spot?

If you plan on parking on Riverdale Heights property for the trunk or treat and participate by handing out candy a spot must be registered (parking spots are free). There is limited parking at Riverdale Heights and this is how we are able to guarantee parking spots to those that have purchased items to decorate their trunks.
If you don’t want to register a parking spot that is totally ok, you just need to park in the adjacent neighborhoods and walk for the treating portion of the event.

How to I register for a parking spot?

Parking spots are available for free by registering on our website. They are first come first serve with only 68 spots available in our main parking lot. There are 650 students at Riverdale Heights.

Ok, I registered for a parking spot – now what?

On Friday, October 15th – please arrive and set up your trunk from 6:00 – 6:45PM. When you arrive at Riverdale Heights, volunteers will help point you towards your parking spot. Then once you park your vehicle, pop your trunk, get comfortable and start setting up your decorations in preparation for treaters to arrive at 7:00 PM.

Set up is at 6:00, but that is dinner time. Is there going to be food for sale?

Unfortunately there is no food for sale at our event. It is now a free event for parking spots and for those that attend for just the treating portion. Please feel free to bring your own take-out or food of your choice for your family to share if needed.

Do I need to bring my own candy or items to hand out at my vehicle?

YES – please bring your own candy or treats to hand out to trunk or treaters. We have approximately 650 students at Riverdale Heights, but unfortunately due to this being our first event we are not positive on crowd size. 

Is there a contest for the best trunk?

Since this is now a free event for parking spots and for all trick or treaters we do not have a fundraiser budget for this event. Therefore, prizes will not be awarded. However, it should still be an awesome family friendly fun event! Feel free to decorate and get into the Halloween spirit - I know our Riverdale Heights community is looking forward to seeing your creations.

I don’t want to register and get a parking spot, but can I still come?

Yes, you can still come and participate in the treating portion of trunk or treat. Please arrive anytime after 7:00 PM; as the trunk or treating will go until 8:00 PM.

Do we come in costume?

YES, please bring your students in costumes (family friendly please) and if adults want to dress up as well that would be great!  Remember, this is NOT a student drop off event - please join us as a family.


Don’t forget to have your students bring bags for trunk or treating!
