LAPLACE — Trunk or Treat will be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Oct. 25 at The Lutheran Church of the Galilean, 3404 U.S. Hwy 51 in LaPlace.

The event is cosponsored by The Lutheran Church of the Galilean, First United Methodist Church and Thrivent Financial for Lutherans.

The Lutheran Church started this event several years ago as a safe and free trick-or-treat for area children and families.

The event was designed as one of many outreach programs by the church’s congregation to the residents of the River Parishes.

Children will be able to receive candy and other treats from the trunks of decorated cars.

Free food, drinks and games will also be provided.

Besides prizes for best decorated vehicles, there will also be a judging of the best child and adult costumes.

Local residents of the River Parishes are encouraged to participate by registering their vehicles.

Vehicle participants should bring their own candy and other treats.

To register or for more information, call 504-442-0205.
