The Halloween holiday is upon us and you don’t want to miss these 10 Trunk Or Treat Themes That Nailed It and have to wait until NEXT year to deck your car out to the nines. But first, let’s get into the holiday spirit.
The zombies were having fun. The party had just begun. The guests included Wolfman, Dracula, and his son. The scene was rockin’, all were digging the sounds. Igor on chains, backed by his baying hounds. The coffin-bangers were about to arrive with their vocal group, ‘The Crypt-Kicker Five.’ They played the mash, they played the monster mash. The monster mash, it was a graveyard smash. They played the mash, it caught on in a flash. They played the mash, they played the monster mash.
Could you name that tune?

10. The Great Pumpkin

It wouldn’t be Halloween without Charlie Brown and his crew of friends.

9. Harry Potter

Harry Potter Trunk or Treat

J.K. Rowling might not be adding to the original Harry Potter series anytime soon, but that doesn’t mean the magic has ended.

8. Andy’s Room (Keep Out!)

Andy's Room Trunk or Treat

This is the perfect Disney theme combo for your trunk and kids’ costumes. All you need is a long table to make the bed and 90 minutes to re-watch Toy Story for some inspiration to complete the rest.

7. CandyLand

It’s not only a hat tip to the classic board game, but also a clever pun. Get it? Trick or treating for candy …. in Candy Land!

6. Mad Scientist

Mad Scientist trunk or treat

I don’t think Halloween is complete unless a scientist somewhere mixes the wrong potions together and creates a terrifying accident.

5. The Mystery Machine


Transform your car to your very own Mystery Machine and help the gang solve another one of their puzzling mysteries.

“And I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren’t for you meddling kids and dog , too!”

4. Alice in Wonderland

Stop pretending, “we’re all mad here” for this trunk or treat idea! Just look out for the Queen of Hearts, you might lose your head.

3. Luau in October

Nothing beats the chill of October like bringing the heat. Unless you live in Southern California where it’s never cold. 

2. The Sandlot
