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
Where: Lido parking lot (Lidostrasse 6A, 6006 Luzern)
If it rains we will meet at Würzenbach Migros indoor parking lot!
