SBCC Athletics to host “Trunk or Treat” on Friday, Oct. 27

The Santa Barbara City College athletics department will be hosting the first annual Trunk or Treat event for children of Santa Barbara and the Santa Barbara City College community on Friday, Oct. 27, 2017. The event will be held in the parking lot adjacent to La Playa Field on Loma Alta Drive from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

"As a community college, we feel it is very important to give back to the local community. I think this will be a fun event for the kids and that our student-athletes can benefit greatly by participating in community service," said Athletic Director Rocco Constantino.

The event is best described as a tailgate party mixed with Trick or Treating and is geared toward kids under the age of 13. Cars will be set up in the parking lot, decorated in Halloween themes. Kids can then go trick or treating at each car, much the same way they would go trick or treating door-to-door.

In addition to trick or treating at each car, there will also be other events and surprises geared toward kids in the community. Outrageous Booths of Santa Barbara will be providing a photo booth free to use for kids participating in the event and the school will feature other fun games and surprises for kids as well.

Admission to the event and all accompanying activities will be free of charge.

"We really believe that we have a great platform for community outreach as an athletics department," said Constantino. "Our goal is to provide families with a memorable experience while also teaching our student-athletes the value of community service."

The Trunk or Treat event will be held at the same time as Santa Barbara City College's home men's soccer game against Allan Hancock College (7 p.m. kickoff) and kids in costume will receive free admission to the soccer game that night as well.
