On Oct. 27, kids can Trunk or Treat at Bruster’s Real Ice Cream in Glen Burnie and help the Anne Arundel County Food Bank.
The annual event is organized by Baltimore Mommies—a group of moms around the area.
“It is a free event for the general public. We ask for donations of canned food for the Anne Arundel County Food Bank,” said Kristin Hurff with Baltimore Mommies. “We have 21 trunks that are decorated this year and the kids go from trunk to trunk getting treats.”
The event will also feature games, the Bruster’s mascot and free ice cream for kids. Plus, the Glen Burnie fire station will be there with a fire truck.
This is the fourth official year Baltimore Mommies has hosted their event at Bruster’s. Last year’s Trunk or Treat was canceled due to the October snowstorm.
“It’s a way for us to get the word out about Baltimore Mommies to the community as well,” Hurff said. “However, the focus is on helping the Anne Arundel County Food Bank. We like to do charity events. Any big events we do we like to have a charity attached to it. Trunk or Treat was started with the food bank in mind.”
Kids who attend Trunk or Treat can also participate in a costume contest.
“We usually have a pretty big crowd—people will be lined up at the door,” Huff said. “We just ask that the kids are under the age of 12, but it is open to all kids. Their moms do not have to be a member of Baltimore Mommies to participate.”
Trunk or Treat will be held from 3 to 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 27 at Bruster’s, which is located at 801 Aquahart Rd. in Glen Burnie.
