Dinosaurs and princesses, superheroes and unicorns, more than 50 costumed trick or trunkers in all, enjoyed the Park Stockdale Civic Association’s Halloween Spooktacular Trunk or Treat and Carnival Friday, Oct.  27.

Seven volunteers decorated their car trunks into everything from a Las Vegas Raiders-themed ghoulish nightmare with skeletons and skeleton dogs to a spider’s cobweb littered with skulls and ghosts that costumed creatures had to brave if they wanted a treat.

The parking lot party included a dance competition, emceed by Melissa Martinez, followed by a costume parade.

Then the party moved into the hall for 13 carnival games and prizes run by volunteers from the Bakersfield High junior varsity baseball team, Toys for Tots and the Young Marines.

Board member Kiki Contreras masterminded and ran the event. Board member Ana Flores helped set up and board member Josh Saravia, and his wife Marilyn, decorated their car trunk for the candy distribution.

Teresa Bradburn, Anthony and Jessica Martinez,
Mariah Lopez, Jose Martinez, JV head baseball coach Dale Romero, coach Sammy Lona, Darlene Doughty, Amber Anderson, Erick Gutierrez and Marc Sandall also volunteered their time.
