Trunk-or-Treat Halloween Events for Kids near Boston

Kids have to wait until Halloween to trick-or-treat, but they can enjoy trunk-or-treat events near Boston all month long. Trunk-or-treating, held at central locations by organizations and groups that decorate cars and hand out candy from their trunks, offer a great alternative to trick-or-treating, when doorbell-ringing traditions get tricky. And with more communities hosting awesome trunk-or-treating events each year, candy-savvy kids end up collecting treats several times before Halloween! We've rounded up several trunk-or-treat events in the Boston area.
