• Trunk or Treat 2016

This event just keeps getting bigger and better with every year.
One of the three winning "trunks" —girl scout troop 1346.

There were 40 trunks passing out candies, and the ones that only brought 500 pieces ran out early. So my guess were there were at least a kazillion people at Marna O'Brien park if not eleventy kazillion.
The festivities started while the sun was still up, and to kick it off the cheerleaders from Elsinore High did a cheer they came up with just for the occasion.

Cheerleaders along with the Wildomar Queens, Councilmember Ben Benoit and Mayor Bridgette Moore. This car wasn't towed to the park, it made it on it's own power. I believe its model year is 1920.

This family snaps some pics of their little one at Faith Baptist's display.

One of the winning Trunks. Where's Waldo was so much better than this picture shows here. They were representing Living Hope Lutheran Church located on Central just to the west of Cervera where Windsong Valley is. 

The firetruck was a big hit.
In addition to candy, the city was also handing out Wildomar themed 2017 calendars, being held up by DJ Robert Rankin Walker who was spinning the haunted hits and also touring the trunks with his remote mic.
Wildomar Rotary had a fundraiser selling DeJong's world famous chocolate milk. Councilmember Ben Benoit (dressed as a combo of the Mad Hatter and Willy Wonka from what I can tell) takes a taste. 
Cub Scout Troop 332 won one of the awards for their haunted maze.
Jodi Pesicka and Toni Bravo-Rousseau of the coming Water Safety 5k dressed as jailbirds.
Have to love it when people dress their dogs in costumes.
Now for my favorite costumes
There were a ton of great costumes, and the ones that were the hands down favs of the crowd were the three T-Rexes. Followed by the twin sharks... at least based on random people taking pics of them.
These three had crowds of people following them around wherever they went.

Like the T-Rex(es), these two were most entertaining when they were bopping to the beat of the music. I was sort of hoping for a rumble between the fish and the lizards, but alas, it never happened.
But hands down, my choice of best costume of the evening went to little Donny Trump. He even had the mannerisms down.

For those that have facebook, here's a link to a live video the mayor broadcast during the event.

Looking forward to next year's Trunk or Treat night. I had a ton more pics to choose from that didn't quite make the cut. The Elks Lodge, Wildomar Chamber, Boy Scout Troop 332, Crew 332, Congressional Candidate Tim Sheridan, Original Christmas Tree Lane, and one that was a poke-stop to name a few. Next year I'll have to make a video like I did in 2014.
The haunted bug made its third appearance in three years.

On Halloween, the parents sent their kids out looking like me.

Wildomar Rap is not a big fan of pumpkin teeth or candy canes for that matter.
