BIRMINGHAM, Ala.. (WIAT) — Trick-or-Treating has changed over the years. While some still traditionally go door to door, Trunk-or-Treating events have grown in popularity.

Trunk-or-Treat events involve the open trunk of a car on display with Halloween decorations to give out candy to children in costumes. Neighborhoods or cities will participate in choosing one local parking lot to host the event. Senior centers have taken Trunk-or-Treating a step further and are inviting kids to visit seniors who pass out candy.

The event brightens both seniors and the children’s night and presents another option to celebrate Halloween.

Kirkwood by the River in Birmingham had a Trick-or-Treat apartment sweep October 24 and handed out candy to all of the kids dressed up in their costumes.

There are more senior centers across Central Alabama that will host a Trunk-or-Treat Halloween celebration. See the list below for one nearest you.
