For spectators, the car show is free. For anyone interested in entering a car, registration is from 3-4:30 p.m. with awards at 6:30 p.m. The registration fee is $20 or $15 with a donation of one bag of canned goods. Awards include “Best of Show” and “Top Ten.”
Chili, hot dogs, and other concessions are available for purchase with proceeds benefiting the Children’s Ministry. For more information, call 972-380-8001 or visit www.standrewumc.org.
“I love this event because it takes all of the church to make it happen,” said Rev. Kim Meyers, associate pastor, family ministries, St. Andrew. “Last year, we had an amazing connection group running the chili cook off, serving 140 pounds of chili and 750 hotdogs in just two hours. The trunk or treat participants were many of our preschool families and the church’s young adults, and the student ministry helped us with setting up, running games, and cleaning up. Everyone played an important role in providing a fun night for the community to enjoy.”
