Trunk and Treat Locations on MDI and Ellsworth
Halloween is Saturday, October 31st, and there will be lots of ghouls and goblins out and about. We have compiled a list of Trunk and Treat locations where families can go. We encourage everyone that day to maintain social distancing, wash and sanitize your hands frequently and wear a protective mask, not just one that may be part of your costume!
