Trunk or Treat
Parking Lot of the Robert Mills House : 1616 Blanding St., Columbia, SC 29201
UPDATE: It looks like we have some ghoulish weather rolling in tomorrow to help set the mood for Trunk or Treat, but don’t let the rain scare you away! Trunk or Treaters will be able to stay dry as they trick-or-treat through our Carriage House and the basement of the historic Robert Mills House, and participate in some fang-tastic Halloween themed crafts and games!
Put on your costume and join Historic Columbia as we bring the fun of Halloween to the Robert Mills House during Trunk or Treat!
Join Historic Columbia October 29th for a fang-tastic family event! Trunk or Treat is FREE and offers a twist on traditional Halloween fun for all ages. Community members, local organizations and families will come together in a safe environment with decorated vehicles and trunks filled with candy for trick-or-treating. Don’t forget to knock on the door of the Robert Mills House, too! Kids get to trick or treat at the front and back doors of Robert Mills and enter the candy-corn guessing contest.
Awards and prizes for best costumes and best decorated trunk will be given at 6:45 p.m. Don’t forget to visit the Gift Shop at Robert Mills and check out the Scarecrows in the Garden during this free event.
