ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - The Halloween festivities continued in Loves Park at the Firstborn Ministries who hosted its first trunk-or-treat event.

The nearly a thousand people who registered for the event drove through the parking lot of the church in their favorite costumes and each kid got a bag of pre-packaged candy. The church also used a radio transmitter to provide cars some music to listen to and some information as trick-or-treaters made their way through the drive-thru.

“This is a safe opportunity for kids to come out and get candy where they might not be able to go door to door this year," said Pastor Anthony Maynard. "So we thought what a great opportunity to reach out to our community here in Loves Park, the greater Rockford area and be able to minister to families and have a good time as well.”
