FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. There were several local Trunk-or-Treat events leading up to Halloween, giving the children of Forsyth more opportunity to dress-up and rack-up on candy.

On Saturday, Oct. 26, the fourth annual Trunk-or-Treat safety event was held at Coal Mountain Park. Booths were set up to hand out candy and educate families on safety and what to do in emergencies. The Forsyth County Fire Department and Sheriff's Office handed out clip-on LED lights for children to wear so they would be more visible while trick-or-treating on Halloween.

"[The Trunk-or-Treat safety event] is something we always look forward to," said Katie Kyle, a Cumming resident.

On Wednesday, Oct. 30, Grace Chapel Church of Christ held a Trunk-or-Treat cookout event. There were boiled peanuts and apple cider and a fire to roast hotdogs and marshmallows.

Families gathered on blankets and in lawn chairs to enjoy the meal. After the meal, families made their way through the 40 decorated trunks to fill their bags with candy.

"I'm so thankful some visitors have come and not just members of our church," said Robin Irwin, one of the event organizers.
