The new Ahwatukee Chick-fil-A, 5035 E. Ray Road, got into the Halloween spirit on Tuesday by hosting a trunk-or-treat event in place of its weekly family night.

Attendees were able to trick-or-treat from car trunks in the restaurant parking lot. Each trunk was appropriately decorated in Halloween flair. Half of the cars belonged to Chick-fil-A employees and the other half were from the community. One Phoenix police car was present as well.

Chick-fil-A taped off part of the parking lot to allow for the kids to trick-or-treat safely from car trunk to car trunk.

Plenty of families attended the event with an impressive showing of kids in costume and supportive parents.

There was a competitive element to the night’s festivities. The best decorated trunk had the chance to win a free party tray from Chick-fil-A. Employees were not eligible for the contest, but had wonderfully decorated trunks that would have given local residents a run for their money.

Ahwatukee residents Patrick and Kristen Bryant were present at the event with their two daughters. They masterfully decorated the trunk of a red sports utility vehicle and were handing out candy to trick-or-treaters.

“It’s darling. We never saw it before,” Kristen Bryant said about the event. “It’s cute, it’s a great environment for the kids.”

Patrick Bryant later participated in a dance-off with the Chick-fil-A cow and another attendant of the event.

Rebecca Stewart was driving her daughter, Emma, from a volleyball clinic to another volleyball clinic and was pleasantly surprised to find that the event was still going on.

“(Emma) almost wanted to skip volleyball clinic to come here,” Stewart said, “She loves Chick-fil-A, it’s her favorite place.”

The Chick-fil-A cow was present as well for photo opportunities and high-fives throughout the evening.
