Mack’s Tavern founder and owner MacKenzie Manley said the event will include “plenty of candy and fun for the kids.” There will be multiple age and gender categories for the “human” costume contests and the canine costume contest scheduled for 7:30 p.m. There also will be prizes for best-decorated car and motorcycle.

“You do not have to decorate your car to hand out candy” during the trunk-or-treat event, Manley said. “We just want as many cars as we can get to hand out candy to the kids this year.”

Drifter’s Shack food truck and a DJ will be on hand, and there will be raffle baskets and a 50/50 drawing with all proceeds going to Adopt A Pit Rescue.
