What’s the difference between TRICK-or-Treat and TRUNK-or-Treat During Halloween

I’m a bit embarrassed to admit, I hadn’t heard of a trunk or treat event until recent years. When I heard about these fun Halloween events for the first time I was a bit confused saying, “excuse me you mean TRICK or Treat, right?”

Nope!

They’re not the same – but they are loads of fun and both types of events mean bringing home loads of candy! #momtax

Halloween in Lansing_Header

In tradition, my kids can’t wait to get out and trick or treat. Then when they’re sleeping, I love to confiscate all of the Reese’s peanut butter cups from their buckets. Horrible, I know.

Aside from the Lansing area annual neighborhood trick or treating fun, there are many other trick or treat events happening around town. So, we made a list just for you. These many events listed below tell me that we really know how to throw great Halloween bashes in Lansing!

Enjoy this Halloween with your family and friends, Lansing!

Lansing’s TRICK-or-Treat and TRUNK-or-Treat with Kids:

If you have an event to add, please send us the info here. Choose the Trunk-or-treat or Trick-or-treat category and your event will show up on this list once approved.
