Annual Gerald Chamber Trunk or Treat draws large crowd

A long, long line didn’t deter any of little ones from waiting for their treats at the Chamber’s annual Trunk or Treat Saturday evening. Local businesses, organizations and individuals lined the field by the arena in City Park. Each entry was decorated in an autumn or Halloween theme. The winning trunk was designed by Michelle Glosser with an autopsy theme. The best costume award went to Braylyn Reed who came dressed as a kissing booth. Braylyn is the son of Joshua and Jessica Reed of Bland. After the candy was collected, many of the kids were able to enjoy a ride on the barrels of fun. Families lined up for a seat on the haunted hayride. The Gerald Bridle and Saddle Club served food to the crowd. To see more photos from this event visit
