Cliffdale Regional Library to host second annual trunk-or-treat on Halloween


In 2022, Cliffdale Regional Library hosted its first trunk-or-treat. Feedback was positive, and families really appreciated having a safe place with free activities to bring their kids. It was so much fun and such a success, we have  decided to host trunk-or-treat again.

This year’s event will take place from 4 to 6:30 p.m. Oct. 31 at Cliffdale Regional Library, 6882 Cliffdale Road, Fayetteville. Wear your favorite (but not too scary) costume and join us for the fun.

Collect candy and prizes from trunks decorated by community organizations, then come inside to enjoy a room filled with games, activities and more prizes. In case of bad weather, activities will be moved inside, and our community partners will host tables in place of trunks.

If Halloween is too long to wait, all eight locations of Cumberland County Public Library have fun fall-themed activities planned. Check out the following free library programs happening throughout the month of October:
