The Goddard School Trunk or Treat is an alternative, free Halloween Celebration for the children of the community.  It also is a fabulous way to be seen and have direct contact

with hundreds of Bedford families.   


Put your costume on and drive your Decorated to the Whole Foods parking lot, on Friday, October 25 th, 4-6 PM. Last year 1000 children come to each car to Trunk or Treat instead of going house to house to Trick or Treat. Consider joining these businesses for a couple of hours of different networking and lots of fun.
