The Agoura Hills-Calabasas Community Center hosted its first Halloween trunk or treat event Wednesday evening. Though the turn out wasn't huge, the people who came said they had a great time.
"It's something safe and fun for the kids," said Calabasas resident Jaimie Rice, mother of one 3 and one 4-year old.
Rice said she was glad the turn out wasn't overwhelming because it gave the small children a chance to have some fun without being knocked around by crowds of bigger kids.
The event consisted of the trunk-or-treat activity, in which kids went from decorated car to car to recieve treats, as well as kids' games and a "Foggy Forest" through which the children could walk. About 10 local businesses and community organizations, as well as the fire department, participated in the trunk or treat.
Some attendees said they hope to the see the event grow.
"I hope they'll keep doing this. It was the first year so not a lot of people even knew about it, I think. But if they keep doing it, it will become a 'thing,' " said Stacey Hickson, also of Calabasas. "Look at what's happened with the Pumpkin Festival," she said.
