VIRGINIA BEACH, Virginia. (October 30, 2015) – A vibrant display of cars lined the parking lot with eerie cobwebs, spooky monsters and carved pumpkins. Amongst these cars was a sea of little monsters patiently awaiting to yell “Trick-or Treat!” Long gone are the days children would be knocking on doors to fill their baskets full of sweets. This year, they travelled from trunk-to-trunk amongst fellow fairies, clowns and numerous other characters in search of a wicked good time.
Naval Special Warfare Group TWO (NSWG-2) members turned the backs of their cars, trucks and minivans into a trick-or-treater’s Halloween haven for the command’s Trunk or Treat event, Oct. 30, on Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story.
This twist to the traditional door-to-door activity was a fun, safe and convenient way for NSW families to celebrate Halloween.
“We thought it would be a good time for our command members and their families,” said Cheryl Miemczewski, Budget Analyst with NSWG-2. “Events like these show the command cares about our families and not just the work we put out.”
Some trunks were transformed into haunted mansions, others into mystical winter wonderlands. Several themes were used to show the claimancy’s creativity and dedication to making this a memorable event for all.
“My favorite trunk was the Pokemon truck,” said one trick-or-treater dressed up like an Arabian Princess. “I can’t wait for next year. This was so much fun.”
Once the last of the candy was handed out, everyone went back home with plenty of treats and looking forward to next year’s Trunk-or-Treat.
