The spell has been cast; our Halloween party will be a blast!

Inspired by the North American holiday of Halloween, this annual tradition at ACS Cobham reflects the growing popularity of a party themed around dressing up, eating candy, and having loads of fun! 

Trunk or Treat is a safe and wickedly entertaining alternative to traditional trick-or-treating.  So, carve out some time, dress in your Halloween costumes, and stop in for a spell at our Trunk or Treat fang-tastic party!

Happy Haunting!

FOOD & BEVERAGE FOR PURCHASE:

Food trucks will be at the event for purchasing food and beverage.  

PSO will also have a “Boo-zy Spirits” bar for adults aged 21 and older.

 Please bring cash and card for payments.

In keeping with the sustainability steps we have taken at our prior events, we will not be providing bottled water.  We ask families to bring their own filled reusable water bottles.  Water stations will be available to refill your reusable water bottles.
