“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 location, as they visit vehicles decorated by SUNY Canton faculty, staff and students. It is a fun and safe way to celebrate Halloween.”A graphic rendering of cars with the trunks open for Halloween
