Worship From Home

 

Treat Street Fall Fest

Located at West Bradenton Baptist (43rd Street parking lot)

 To host a trunk or for more information contact Brandi.  Gather your family, friends, or life group to host a decorated trunk (no scary decorations please).  We will provide the candy!

Our plan for a fun, safe evening:

  • This is a socially distanced, walk-thru event

  • Trunks will be located every other parking space (at least 6 ft apart).

  • Only one family will be in front of a trunk at a time.

  • Volunteers passing out candy will be wearing gloves.

  • Markings on the sidewalk to ensure families are practicing social distancing.

  • Lots of candy for every kid!


Join us for this safe alternative to trick-or-treating!
