Only kids collecting candy need tickets - do not order tickets for adults in your group!

Option 1 - Registering to hand out candy (Trunker) - Now Open!

Each car is highly encouraged to create a theme and decorate your vehicle / trunk. Some examples are included in the photo gallery. Your theme can be scary, funny or anything you wish, but please ensure it is appropriate for a family event. 

We'll have prizes for the best Trunks and Boo Crews! Our goal this year is to have 100 trunks on site so please tell your friends, family, sports teams, business - everyone - about this event in case they might be interested in handing out candy. 

All candy being given away must be factory sealed and packaged. No homemade goods or self packaged loose candies are to be distributed. You are responsible for bringing candy to hand out. Please be prepared to hand out candy to 400 trick or treaters. Be prepared for any weather. You will hear that we plan on accomodating up to 2000 kids this year, but you only need to bring 400 candies.

After you have signed up your vehicle to hand out candy, you will recieve a PDF ticket with important information. Please print this ticket and have it with you upon arrival. Vehicle setup will begin at 11am and you must be ready to hand out candy by 12:30pm. Late arrivals will not be accomodated as children will be walking a one-way path trick or treating begining at 12:45pm. Vehicles should plan to be on site as late as 430pm so that all children have had time to walk to each vehicle. Although highly discouraged, If you need to leave early because of an unplanned reason, please speak to one of our staff to safely escort your vehicle away from the trunk or treating area. If you have children that would like to collect candy, we will have a special session for them at 12:45pm before the main group of kids show up. They will be able to visit each car and collect candy at this time before the main event begins - you DO NOT need to reserve a Trick Or Treating ticket for your own kids.

Option 2 - Choose a Time Slot To Bring Your Child Trunk Or Treating. Tickets become available on October 1st at 10am:

This is a 'pay what you can' event. All money collected will be used to cover operating expenses and any proceeds will be donated to the Orillia Youth Centre. You are not obligated to pay anything, but a suggested $2 per child donation is very much appreciated! To ensure minimum wait times, we have various registration times and limit the number of arrivals per time slot. Please choose an available time slot and arrive promplty within that time frame or you will be refused entry. When selecting your tickets, choose only the number of children in your group - adults DO NOT need a ticket. To help accomodate as many kids as possible, a maximum of 4 children is allowed per order. Be sure to bring your printed ticket which is a downloadable PDF file provided at the end of the registration process, this ensures you have a reservation for the event. If you are no longer able to attend, please contact us to cancel your ticket to make room for other kids.
