SUNY Canton to Host ‘Trunk or Treat’ Event


The SUNY Canton Early Childhood Studies program will be hosting a “Trunk or Treat” event from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 26, in the campus’ French Hall parking lot (Lot 8).

“A ‘trunk or treat’ is similar to the traditional trick or treat that takes place on Halloween,” explained Maureen P. Maiocco, Ed.D., Early Childhood AS and BBA program coordinator. “Children wear costumes and collect candy and prizes in one safe location, as they visit vehicles decorated by SUNY Canton faculty, staff and students. It is a fun way to celebrate.”

The event is free, and families of children aged 2-10 are welcome (parking is available in Lot 6). Rain location will be in the Convocation, Athletic and Recreation Center’s field house.
