Crowds Fill Downtown for Plow Boys Trunk-or-Treat
It was cars, costumes, candy and more as Halloween came early to downtown Hope Saturday night during the annual Plow Boys Car Club’s Trunk-or-Treat.
The event, which is the last of the year for the group of auto enthusiasts, gives the members a chance to share their passion with the community while raising money for good causes and providing fun activities for families. According to several members of the Plow Boys, this was the biggest turnout for the event yet.
The Plow Boys put their cars and trucks on display along both sides of Main St., many decorated for the occasion, and handed out candy to the children. In addition to the Trunk-or-Treat this year there was a chili cook-off, bounce houses, raffles, games, face painting, food and a costume contest for the kids. Along with the Plow Boys, the Lions, Tailgaters and students from the HAPS School participated in the event.
Money raised at the event went to several different causes. The Lions were raising money for their Christmas baskets which they will be passing out in December and the Plow Boys raised money for the Hempstead County Sheriff’s Office Operation Christmas and for the family of Joe Allen Shewbirt, who passed away last week.
The Plow Boys get together once a month downtown from April through October every year, finishing things off with Trunk-or-Treat. They welcome the public to come by, check out their rides and talk cars any time. In addition to their events, you can catch them at car shows around the area throughout the year.
