The annual community Trunk or Treat event will be held Halloween night around the Village Square. This is the fourth year area organizations will bring the event to Mexico. It will be held from 6 to 8 p.m.

Organizers won't be sure how many groups will participate until about a week before the event. "In the past we have had 20 to 30 participants," said Chris Creech, one of the organizers. Creech said churches, businesses and organizations are welcome to sign up to participate. He said they have also had some charitable organizations participate.

In addition to handing out candy, some groups offer entertainment. "Some groups decorate, have games and even shows," Creech said.

Creech said the event is a fun and safe evening for the entire family.

There is still time for groups to signup for this year's event.

Signup can be made by contacting Creech at chris.creech@genesisbegins.com or mexicomotrunkortreat@yahoo.com
