We loved Trunk or Treat 2018!
Easily our favorite day of the year, we here at Newton Nissan South love getting to see our community turn out for Trunk or Treat. It’s also an important day for us, because it is a day that we don’t promote ourselves. Instead, we promote our community. This year, the Cascade High School Band Boosters helped us decorate over 40 trunks that we filled with enough candy for all the afternoon’s visitors! In return, we were able to donate some funds to help them continue to grow their program.
Additionally, the National Honor Society partnered up with our second community organization, the Humane Society of Shelbyville-Bedford County! They teamed up to also decorate several trunks to join in the fun. And, of course, our very own Newton Panda Bear made her annual appearance!
We could not have asked for better weather for Trunk or Treat this year! The students & their cars showed up early and began setting up: decorating their cars, trucks, and SUVs into spooky entrances, fun characters, science labs, and music-filled pop culture references, such as The Wizard of Oz and Star Wars. We had a friendly competition over whose trunk was the best, and we brought in fun bouncy houses and, new for this year, a mechanical bull for the kids to enjoy! We had a much bigger turnout this year, and we were so proud and happy to host everyone and serve lots of pizza and candy for a few hours!
One of the winners was an adorable little white car, simply decorated as…well watch this video to find out:
So, why do we do this?
Because we here believe that our customers are more important than our cars; our community is more valuable than our bottom line. And to show this, we simply want to be a part of each others’ lives. And Trunk or Treat is one of those days that allows us to host a fun event, get to know our community, and give back.
