3rd Annual Trunk or Treat in Londonderry

Looking for some safe Halloween fun and trick or treating? Stop by the Londonderry Christian Church parking lot on Wednesday, October 31st between 5:30 and 8 p.m. for our 3rd annual Trunk or Treat event! Free candy and fun for all—stop by before you wrap up your Halloween this year! You and your child will be able to stop at each decorated car’s trunk for candy and fun!  This will be a safe place for you to come Trick or Treat on Halloween Night!

Last year will be remembered as the year without a Halloween due to the snow storm.  This “Snowtober” storm rates as PSNH’s third largest outage in history, following the December 2008 Ice Storm and February 2010 Wind Storm. Snowfall from the storm is the most recorded in New Hampshire during October in 140 years.  The event was changed to the first weekend in November.

We hope that this Halloween is not a repeat of last year.  Everyone should try to attend Turnk or Treat at the Londonderry Christian Church located at 372 Mammoth Rd, Londonderry, NH.
