FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - October is the month to play dress-up without judgement -- and one of the first events of dress-up season happens this weekend.

Summit Church Alaska in North Pole is inviting everyone with a sweet tooth to come out to receive their portion of 500 pounds of candy collected by the Summit Christian Academy students.

The invitation is extended to attend their Trunk or Treat event - filled with candy, games, and prizes - Sunday, October 3rd for families across the borough.

Parking is provided at Morningstar Park, where shuttles will be waiting to take Trunk or Treaters to Summit Church Alaska’s parking lot for the festivities.

Meanwhile, if you need to downsize your pantry, Summit Church will be collecting food donations at this event for a special cause.

Not only will there by plenty of sweets at the event, the decadence will be extended afterwards according Teffonie Wyman, Senior Pastor of Summit Church Alaska.

“We are inviting everyone who comes to the Trunk or Treat to bring packages of individually wrapped food for Power Packs,” Wyman explained. “Power packs are weekend food packs that we provide to local schools to students who are food insecure. We pack these packs with enough food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner all day Saturday, [and] all day Sunday, and then we give them to the schools to disperse to the students they know that could use the extra support.”

There will be lots of costumes, hot cocoa, and candy at the event. You can stop by Summit Church Alaska located at 3340 Badger Rd # 280 Sunday between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.
