Grab your candy bags and load up the cars, it's time for SO MANY Trunk or Treats in Rockford. 

Way back when I was a kid, we only really celebrated Halloween on October 31. Maybe, just maybe, if Halloween was on a Monday or Tuesday, there would be a Halloween party the weekend before, but there was not trick-or-treating until the sun was down on the 31st.

These days, not only do kids get the chance to wear their costumes pretty much the entire month of October, but there are a bunch of trunk-or-treat events leading up to actual Halloween.

Not only does this give the community to get together in a safe place to celebrate Halloween, but it also gives kids a chance to double or triple their candy haul!
