GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - Peace Lutheran Church in Grand Island brought their annual trunk-or-treat back, but this year they did it drive-thru style at Hall County Park.

“It’s just about serving our community, and doing something fun for families, something fun and free, and just a little kind of break from the normal,” said Outreach Director Rachel Rathman.

From 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., parents drove with their kids in the backseats dressed as ghouls, goblins and witches. Church volunteers also dressed in costumes, and GIPD and local firefighters passed out bags of candy to the trick-or-treaters.

Organizers expected the trunk-or-treat to be packed.

“We advertised it on Facebook and it got a lot of attention," Rathman said. “With the normal Halloween things maybe not being so recommended this year, we thought it would be something people could do and still do it in a COVID safe manner.”

Cars lined up all throughout the park and Schimmer Drive and waited to participate in the early Halloween fun.
