Carrollton Bible Chapel – The annual Trunk or Treat and Chili Cook-off is planned Oct. 29 from 3-5 p.m. at Carrollton Bible Chapel on SR 43.

“This is such a unique way of receiving treats as the children go from trunk to trunk in a safe environment,” said Judy Cunningham, contact person. “Each trunk is decorated by a chapel person who wishes to participate.”

Each trunk has a different theme. Children are encouraged to dress up.

The congregation will offer an afternoon of various activities including face painting, photo booth, balloon making and bounce house. Members of Safe Kids Carroll County will provide handouts.

As children arrive, the registration sign will announce where to enter the building. Each child will be given a ticket which will entitle them to a door prize.

Inside, hot dogs, beverages, treats, popcorn and gifts will be available. A variety of chili will be on hand in the fellowship hall to taste and vote on one.
