It’s Back! Drive-In Trunk or Treat (Families)

Join us as we celebrate Halloween by coming together at the Pepper Pike Learning Center to watch Hocus Pocus!

As an added bonus, we will have Orange Community Education & Recreation staff members and Orange Early Childhood teachers greet you as you drive thru "OCER Alley", a fun path with decorated trunks to be voted on by you! Proceeds generated from concessions and 50/50 raffle tickets will benefit the Orange Community Education & Recreation Scholarship Fund. Special thank you to our sponsor Waterway Carwash for helping to make this event possible! Please note: Trunk-or-Treat is open to Orange City School District residents only. Registration is required and space is limited. Get a flyer here
