What can be better than cars and candy bars? Byron Health Center staff and family along with special guests, the Fort Wayne Corvette Club and the Eel River Elementary school PTA, are expected to bring trick-or-treaters out a bit early to enjoy some pre-Halloween Trunk-O-Treat fun among parked cars with decorated trunks and plenty of candy. Members of the community are also invited to join in on the family-friendly Trunk-O-Treat presented by MKM architecture + design event. Byron Health Center residents will also come out and help pass out the candy. There will be a fire roaring in the fire pit. You can also warm up in the Eakin Family Room with some hot chocolate and catch a spooky movie on the big screen TV. The Wyss Farm Enterprises straw bale maze will also provide fun and frolic for area children. This will be a fun-filled fall evening for all! The event will be held rain or shine and is free of charge.
