WAITE PARK -- The 6th annual Trunk-or-Treat event at the Minnesota School Business today was a treat for the thousands of kids and their parents.

Over 3,000 people were estimated for the afternoon that featured games, food, and trick-or-treating from trunk to trunk from various volunteers from the school and the community.

Admission into the event required a donation of a non-perishable food item for area food shelves.

"It's just a fun way to give to give back to the community," says Jim Beck of the Minnesota School of Business. "And it lets our students come out [with] their families, so it's just something that we love to do."

Beck says the event has seen great turnouts from the public every year since it started and the creativity in the trunk decorations have evolved each year.

"It used to be just a few webs when they flipped the trunk open," Beck says. "Now we've got full themes [like] Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Minions...and more."

"It's fun to give back during the holiday season and this is a great way to kick it off."
