Steve Hahn’s 3rd annual Trunk or Treat had a better turn out then we could have ever imagined! There were 8,786 trunk-or-treaters that came through the entrance! We are so happy to see our community come together to make this year’s turn out so great. We are proud that we could provide a safe, fun environment for everyone to come out and enjoy. We want to make sure that parents and children are safe instead of out walking in the dark, across busy streets, or having parents worry about the candy they are getting from strangers. We all have kids, cousins, grand kids, nieces and nephews, so we know the importance of safety.
We had volunteer police officers at the event as well as YV-Tech students directing everyone to the entrance as well as the exit. We were able to provide a completely closed event with one entrance and one exit.
There was a total of 85 decorated trunks on the lot! Whats even more incredible is that there was 125 Vendors in total that participated this year, from signs to extra candy, it was spectacular! This year we asked that all the vendors donate $50 to the First Responders of Yakima. With that being said, we also had a Go Fund Me page and collected monetary donations at the door and we were able to raise over $3,600! some vendors were unable to be at the event but donated in other ways such as prizes for best doggy costume, best child costume, best adult costume, and best trunk.
The participation on our staff’s behalf was pretty great as well. From Vampires to zombies, Michael Myers and minions, we had a variety of fun costumes worn by our staff. There were so many awesome and creative costumes that came through.
Not only did we have lots of candy but Kim’s got smoke provided wonder food and customer service for a great price! There was a face paint station so even if someone wasn’t dressed up for the occasion they didn’t feel out of place. This year there was a rock paint station where the kiddos got to express their creativity and have some extra fun if they wanted. We also turned the showrooms into a very spooky haunted house where we had employees donate their time to be haunters.
A big thank you to Get Air, The Range, Skateland, Bale Breaker, Hendos Accessories, Manheim Seattle, Townsquare Media, Chroma Entertainment and many others for helping us with another great year!
