WALLINGFORD, Conn. — Elevate Life Church in Wallingford held its first trunk-or-treat event Sunday bringing a hundred kids dressed up for Halloween.
Lead Pastor Jeremy Baker says they like to be a part of the community and help families every day of the week.
"It means a lot to me personally, but it means a lot to our families and the members of our church that we can just love on kids and help kids know that they’re loved," he said.
Dozens of cars decorated their trunks for the event. 9-year-old Marc Valdez came dressed as a Storm Trooper from Star Wars.
"I kind of like Halloween, so I wanted to come here and get some candy and have some fun," he said.
Baker says they'll likely continue to host the event in the years ahead.
There were also bounce houses, a costume parade, games, and prizes for families.
