Sign up NOW to host a “Trunk” at Trunk or Treat during PumpkinFest in Downtown Carlisle

Great Western Bank Invites You to Participate in Trunk or Treat.

Decorate Your Vehicle, Set up a Fun Game, Hand Out Candy to the Kids, and Have Some Halloween Fun during PumpkinFest, from 1:30 – 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 21st.

Trunk or Treat is a lot of fun for kids who participate in PumpkinFest. Great Western Bank is again sponsoring Trunk or Treat in their parking lot at 100 N. 1st Street, and is inviting local residents and businesses to provide children with a fun and safe way to celebrate Halloween.

Trunk or Treat participants are invited to decorate the trunk of their car, or the bed of their truck, with a fun, silly, or scary theme. Dress in costume, be creative and have Halloween fun surprising children and adults with themes such as pumpkins, scarecrows, ghosts and ghouls, children’s movies, sports teams, Christmas in October, or something from your childhood past. Last year over 400 kids walked by the displays and receive candy, coupons, or treats.

Great Western Bank will award a prize to the “Best Trunk”.

We would love to fill the Great Western Bank parking lot with “Trunks”. If you want to get in on the fun, please contact Shannon Daniels to reserve your spot. Her daytime phone number is 515.989-2605 or email

Trunks need to be set up and ready to go by 12:45 on the day of the event. Kids will hit the parking lot after the 1:00 p.m. costume parade.

PumpkinFest is sponsored by The Carlisle Area Chamber of Commerce. For more information, contact the Chamber at 515/989-4216.
