  • A picnic lunch, drinks and whatever else you will need for an enjoyable day in the woodland glades.
  • Sausage or other meat for the grill: We will be making a fire and you can grill up what you bring

2020-10-31 Halloween Trunk or Treat

Halloween - Trunk or Treat


Thursday October 31, 2020    6:30pm - 9.00pm

Lido parking lot


Everyone is welcome!


The American Halloween tradition of “trick-or-treating” probably dates back to the early All Souls’ Day parades in England. During the festivities, poor citizens would beg for food and families would give them pastries called “soul cakes” in return for their promise to pray for the family’s dead relatives.

On Halloween, when it was believed that ghosts came back to the earthly world, people thought that they would encounter ghosts if they left their homes. To avoid being recognized by these ghosts, people would wear masks when they left their homes after dark so that the ghosts would mistake them for fellow spirits.


Come and have a spooky good time with the whole family! We will be decorating the trunks of our cars in celebration of Halloween, as well as handing out sweets to the little ones. Don't forget to wear your best costume—we will award prizes for best-dressed car, best adult costume, AND best child costume!


Time: 6:30pm  - 9pm

Cost: FREE!

Where: Lido parking lot (Lidostrasse 6A, 6006 Luzern)

If it rains we will meet at Würzenbach Migros indoor parking lot!


Things to Bring

  • Car to decorate, plus Halloween decorations
  • 4-5 bags of candy to pass out
  • Flashlights, pumpkins, spooky music (anything to set the mood)
  • Trash bags to clean up after the event

Prizes Awarded

  • Best Decorated Car
  • Best Costume (Adults & Kids)


No need to RSVP for this event, just come and bring your friends! Please email Ursula at or call 079 398 48 50 with any questions
