Claremore Expo to serve as new home for 2023 Hot Rod Trunk or Treat

Temperatures are cooling and leaves are changing, which means we have officially started the fall season.

I look forward to the changing leaves, outdoor activities and brilliant colors that flood our community this time of year. From the Shepherd’s Cross Pumpkin Festival to Halloween at the Will Rogers Museum, Claremore offers many activities to help you celebrate. Additionally, with more than 1,200 acres of fishing, hiking, and mountain biking, the cooler temperatures provide an excellent opportunity to explore some of Claremore’s outdoor recreation offerings.

A popular fall community event has a new home this Halloween season. The Hot Rod Trunk or Treat will be hosted at the Claremore Expo Center after witnessing exponential growth over the past few years. Last year, more than 2,500 kids and 300 hot rods came together for this community event, allowing children of all ages to trunk-or-treat while enjoying some truly spectacular vehicles!

This year’s trunk-or-treat will be held on Friday, October 27, beginning at 6:30 p.m. The candy route will start at the Claremore Fire Department trucks and end at the Cedar Point booth. We are truly honored to partner with Claremore Friday Cruise and Cedar Point Church on this celebration and look forward to providing a safe and fun Halloween experience for Claremore!

There are many opportunities to enjoy this time of year, whether it is enjoying a festival in the Lilac District or celebrating the spooky season at the Belvidere Mansion’s Haunted House. I encourage you to discover the many activities our community has to offer. You can view a complete list of fall events at

Have a wonderful weekend!
