Forsyth County families are invited to a safe and fun Halloween-themed event, according to a press release. The family-friendly Trunk or Treat Safety Event is 6 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 23, at the Cumming Fairgrounds main parking lot (260 Castleberry Road).

Children will have fun while learning about Halloween safety including costume safety, pedestrian safety, stranger danger, stop-drop-roll demonstrations and more. Children are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes. Admission is one bag of unopened candy per family.

The Forsyth County Fire Department is also inviting local businesses and nonprofit organizations to participate. Those interested must apply by Friday, Oct. 15.

There are two ways to participate – by trunk, where candy is handed out to children from the decorated trunk of a vehicle, or by having a booth, with a free interactive activity or giveaway.
