Houston Area Trunk-or-Treats for Halloween

Trick-or-treating is great and all, but if this year is as hot as previous Halloweens, walking around in thick felt costumes may not exactly get your little ones excited. Trunk-or-Treat events are great alternatives (or opportunities to collect more chocolate for mom) because they offer a safe environment where your kids can still get their candy fix without having to lap the neighborhood.

For those who are scratching their heads at the word "trunk," these events usually feature area organizations and groups that decorate the trunk of a car (typically in elaborate and fun displays) and fill it with candy. Read on to find a trunk-or-treat event that's on or near Halloween close to you.
