MUNCIE, IN— The Boys & Girls Club of Muncie hosted the annual Trunk-or-Treat and Fall Festival at Heekin Park on Friday, October 28th.   Local businesses and organizations lined Heekin Park in Muncie to hand out candy and goodies as kids and families walked through the park dressed in costumes.

Trunk-or-Treat was scheduled to begin at 4pm, and before the official start time, the line to get in was roughly 600 feet long.  Once opened, the line moved quickly as children and their parents rushed to get candy from 91 separate vehicle trunks filled with candy and goodies. A good deal of creativity was on display as trunk owners designed unique and festive car trunks. Ball State Sports was a sponsor of the event and they had a record number of teams participate. You’ll see the baseball team, golf team and more in the video and pictures below.
