Editor’s Note: The following comes from the Norwood Recreation Department.
The Recreation Department has partnered with the Skating Club of Boston, 750 University Ave., and they are hosting the Trunk or Treat Drive Through on Saturday, Oct. 24, at 11:30 a.m. The club has a huge parking lot perfect for a drive-thru.
This year the cost will be $5 per car that drives through, and all the money will go to the Norwood Food Pantry. All cars must be preregistered.
This event is for Norwood residents only.
Participants will drive through and see all the different themed trunks and be able to wave; the department encourages participants to wear costumes and decorate their cars and get in the Halloween spirit.
Each trunk this year will not be passing out candy, but participants will receive a goody bag at the end of all the trunks from the Recreation Department due to COVID. The department already has more than 25 cars registered to decorate trunks, and police, fire, light, Norwood Community Media and DPW will be bringing a truck.
Registration will be limited and will open on Tuesday, Oct. 13, at 9 a.m. There will be two time slots; only cars registered for the time slot will be able to drive through at that time.
Candy donations wanted
This year the department is making more than 500 goodie bags for Trunk or Treat participants. In order to donate all the proceeds to the Norwood Food Pantry, we need your help with candy donations.
Individually wrapped candy can be sent via Amazon to 165 Nahatan St., or candy dropped off at the Civic Center. We are open from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. All candy donations need to be brought in by Friday, Oct. 16.
