For nearly a decade, Trunk or Treat has been both a great pre-Halloween event for both the community and Weston Ranch High.

On Wednesday, the tradition continued with comfortable weather conditions in the low 70s.

With it came youngsters and their parents from the southwest Stockton community dressed in costumes, playing games while winning candies.

Add students from the Manteca Unified school site to the mix.

“It’s a lot of fun for everyone,” said Weston Ranch High Activities Director Aubrey Lewis. 

The various clubs on campus did their part for Trunk or Treat.

The Theater Club once again converted the Speech Arts building into a Haunted House.

Students in local chapter of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America turned the Jeep Wrangler belonging to their teacher Jeannine Wayman into a bean bag-toss pig.

“One of my students came up with that idea,” she said.

Wayman’s FCCLA group is involved in culinary arts.

“This is not your mom’s home economics class,” she added.

Many local youngsters came dressed for Halloween. Parrish Riggs, for example, wore a shark costume that once belonged to his father.

Each made their way around the parking lot in front of the administration building, playing games in order to win free candy.

Many also enjoyed taking part in activities based on the Netflix series Stranger Things another on the Panic Room.

Principal Troy Fast was especially thrilled with the overall attendance of Trunk or Treat.

“What a great turnout,” he said.
