With Halloween a week away, some are kicking off the trick or treating early

On Saturday afternoon, the Floreciente Association hosted its third annual Trunk or Treat block party.

MOLINE, Ill. — Halloween is just around the corner, but some kids are getting the chance to start trick or treating a little bit early this year. 

The Floreciente Association hosted its third annual Trunk or Treat block part Saturday, Oct. 23. About 80 kids came dressed in their Halloween costumes and got to trick-or-treat at the different parked cars.

"It's a way to have a safe, controlled environment for children to trick-or-treat," said Floreciente Association Co-chair Susana Aguilar said. "We had plenty of cars lined up and down the street. Each one had their own theme and own costume."

There was also a raffle, cake walk and costume contest. This year's costume contest winner came dressed as Edward Scissorhands. 

"The best thing about this event is that we're bringing the community together," Aguilar said. "Our neighbors get to know neighbors, kids get to see each other outside of school and then we also get to dress up and have fun."
