KINGSPORT, TN (WJHL) – Dozens from Grace Fellowship Church in Kingsport gathered for a non scary trunk or treat event.

trunk-or-treatIn partnership with the Autism Society of America, churchgoers with children on the autism spectrum or with other special needs got to have some fun without the scarier side of Halloween.

“This actually sprung from just having children of our own that were on the autism spectrum that just had some fears when it came to Halloween and didn’t like the scariness of Halloween and unfortunately couldn’t be included in Halloween because of those fears,” Erin Hollis of Grace Fellowship Church said.

Churchgoers decorated and dressed up in various kid friendly themes. The event included face painting, food and even, hayrides.
