On October 26, Royal High School held an event and fundraiser for both the community and the school in our school parking lot. The event was filled with candy, games, face painting, and decorated trunks each with either a spooky Halloween theme. Our own Vice Principal Mrs. Myszkowski’s car was Star Wars themed, which matched her Jedi costume. The event helped fund more clubs at our school. The AFROTC program also had a drone flying around taking footage of the whole event which lasted from 5:00 p.m. till 7:00 p.m. Each trick-or-treater had on costumes such as Spiderman, Cruella Deville, Georgie from It, Pikachu, a witch, zombie, scarecrow, unicorn, fairy, dragon, nerd, minion, baby Yoda, hippie, Minnie Mouse, corpse bride, little red riding hood, tune squad, a ghost, a Teletubbie, and Stitch.
The “trunkers” were all volunteers from the school and even the community, each trunk handed out candy. The trick-or-treaters were happy and full of sugar, playing fun games like pin the candy corn on the narwhal for Key Club, a football toss game hosted by our cheer-leaders, a corn-hole game for the Junior class Council, and they even had a pie the teacher booth. The whole event was free and open to the public.
The only thing that cost money was the games, they raised some money to help and create new clubs. When you arrived at the front there was a table where you could buy tickets to play games, the tickets also came with a bag for the treater’s candy and a glow stick with glasses. If you couldn’t come this year the event is planned to take place again next year. The trunkers did a swell job at decorating their trunks, overall it was a fun night to remember.
