Trunk or Treat
Parking Lot of the Robert Mills House : 1616 Blanding St., Columbia, SC 29201
Join Historic Columbia October 22nd 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 basement doors of Robert Mills.
This year, masks are required for all participants, and we will promote social distancing by limiting the number of trunks in our parking lot and having tables spread out throughout the lawn. Participants are asked to bring hand sanitizer to use while distributing candy.
Don’t forget to check out the Scarecrows in the Garden during this free event.
