Trunk or Treat!

Tristan at Halloween

Sedona hosts "Trunk or Treat at Posse Grounds Park on Oct. 31, 2021

Join the city of Sedona Parks and Recreation Department for a spooktacular Trunk or Treat event at Posse Grounds Park on Oct. 31, 2021, from 5 to 7 p.m. where many of Sedona’s businesses and organizations will be hosting decked out vehicle trunks while donning their best costumes and passing out candy. Children trick-or-treat by going from car trunk to car trunk to fill their bags with goodies.

Usually, there is a large-scale event in Uptown Sedona but in a survey of merchants, a majority expressed concern over the COVID-19 Delta variant and the high number of youth cases, resulting in a decision to postpone the Uptown event until next year. The city and merchants wanted to provide an alternative, in which both the community and businesses still had the opportunity to partake in Halloween fun, hence why the Trunk or Treat at Posse Grounds Park will fill the void, allowing families to enjoy safe trick-or-treating in a festive, open and outdoor venue.

“We are so thankful for the businesses and organizations who have sponsored the Trunk or Treat event like Arizona Water Company and APS, or who have signed up to host a trunk, making this family event possible. It takes the community coming together during these difficult times, to think of safe alternatives so we can still gather for special occasions and holidays. The annual Uptown trick-or-treating will be missed this year, but we’re still going to have a great event for kids and families to attend,” said Dawn Norman, parks and recreation manager, city of Sedona.

Hi Sheri... this sounds like it will be a fun event for the kiddos. Tristan is growing up right before our eyes and gets better looking all the time. Have fun.

That will be a fun event for all that attend, especially all of the little ghosts and ghouls running around Sedona.

Thank you, Hannah Williams - I asked Tristan what he was going to be for Halloween and he told me "A Bat"!  Leave it to a 5-year-old!

Hi Endre Barath, Jr. - I get it!  Since moving to Sedona full time almost 15 years ago, we live in an area that is gated and hard to get to.  So no kids do trick or treating.

Hi Grant Schneider - I agree.  I like the controlled atmosphere.  It also gives businesses another opportunity to advertise.

Hi Michael Jacobs - I laughed when I saw your comment.  Tristan has been getting ready for Halloween since before summer ended.  As for Christmas... it is all year long!

Hi Brian England - We are fortunate to live close to this park.   The city is going to make some major improvements for the community in this area over the next 3 years.  It is shaping up to be the area where all community functions are held.

Hi Joan Cox - He loves dressing up in costume and I am very curious as to why he wanted to be a "Bat".  His first choice was a lizard.  (??) But there are no costumes for his age.  LOL!

Hi Will Hamm - When My kids were growing up, there were not many who did all the wonderful decorations you find today.
