ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- First Free Church held a "Trunk or Treating" event tonight.
More than 40 volunteers decorated and filled the back end of their cars with goodies.
Some parents say they prefer this method considering they know where the candy is coming from.
"With the cars in the streets and stuff, everything is confined here, and it's a lot easier to spend time with a lot of other families and people," says Mark Richardson.
Close to 4,000 people attended tonight's event.
