SwedishAmerican, Rockford Police Department, Rockford Fire Department and the United Way are teaming up to host a free Trunk-or-Treat event in the Midtown District, located at the VFW Hall, 922 7th Street, Rockford. The event will take place on Wednesday, October 27 from 5:00 – 7:00 PM. Neighborhood children and families are invited to wear their Halloween costumes early and trick-or-treat from the trunk of a police car, ambulance, fire truck and SwedishAmerican security vehicle.

Children and families can participate in fun games and get their face painted. Additionally, everyone will receive a free glow stick and Halloween bag and have the opportunity to meet local police officers and fire fighters, SwedishAmerican’s mascot SAM the dog, and Rockford Police Department’s mascot Eddie the Eagle.
