Cullman Regional is excited to announce it will be hosting the 3rd Annual Trunk or Treat event on October 26, 2017 from 4 to 7 pm on the Cullman Regional Campus.

Last year’s event was a huge success with more than 8,000 community members attending. Main features of this year’s event include free food, games, free health screenings and more candy than ever before.

The event also features elaborate trunks decorated and hosted by various departments and physician offices from across Cullman Regional’s campus.

“We initially hoped to host a few hundred people on campus for some fun and food,” Cullman Regional’s Executive Director of Marketing Lindsey Dossey laughed. “However it continues to grow and exceed our expectations each year.”

Cullman Regional departments compete to win “Best Trunk” as voted on by the event attendees; which has become a coveted title and has sparked some amazing creativity in the trunks featured each year.

“We have been amazed by the creativity of so many of our departments. Each year, the competition for first place becomes for fierce,” Dossey said. ”Last year, we had a three-way tie between Dr. Suess, Alice in Wonderland and Harry Potter — who were all amazing.”

This year’s event will add a few additional features to help make the evening even more memorable than previous years.

“We like to add and improve the event every year; so you’ll just have to come to see what’s new,” Dossey said.
