Rogersville Trunk or Treat organizer managed to squeeze hundreds of youngsters and their parents into a local event venue where the 23 “Trunks” that had originally planned for an outdoor event were able to shrink down to indoor booth size.
What sets Rogersville's annual downtown Trunk-or-Treat apart from the rest are the folks who decorate the trunks, always trying to out-do what they did last year, as well their neighbors.
The award for best of the best decorated "Trunks" went to the local Boy/Cub Scouts with their "Walking Dead" theme complete with zombies breaking through a wall, Negan and "Lucille". The HCSO’s “Old West” was 2nd, followed by the Christian-Sells “Minions” in 3rd.
Hawkins County always offers a variety of spooky Halloween activities during the month of October, and as has become tradition over the past decades, the biggest of them all is Rogersville's Oct. 31 massive downtown Trunk-or-Treat event.
With 30 “trunks” handing out three or four pieces of candy to more than 3,000 children, there was a lot of sugar changing hands — and undoubtedly a lot of sugar addled children giving mom and dad grief at bedtime Tuesday night.
