Time: 11:00am – 1:00pm
Players stay in the vehicles and parade through the MLT parking lot where they can enjoy decorated vehicles and pick out treats. Volunteers from the community (individuals, groups and organizations) will be invited to participate by decorating a vehicle and providing prepackaged treat bags. Players can vote for their favorite “Trunk” too. This event is for Miracle League athletes and their immediate family. It is not open to the public.
