Put on your costume and join Historic Columbia as we bring the fun of
Halloween to the Robert Mills House during Trunk or Treat!

Join Historic Columbia October 29th for a fang-tastic family event! Trunk or
Treat is FREE and offers a twist on traditional Halloween fun for all ages.
Community members, local organizations and families will come together in a
safe environment with decorated vehicles and trunks filled with candy for
trick-or-treating. Don’t forget to knock on the door of the Robert Mills
House, too! Kids get to trick or treat at the front and back doors of Robert
Mills and enter the candy-corn guessing contest.

6:45 p.m. Don’t forget to visit the Gift Shop at Robert Mills and check out
the Scarecrows in the Garden during this free event.
