Trunk or Treat Halloween event for kids on Friday

Kids' Halloween event is Friday evening.

Plainfield youngsters ages 12 and under are invited to take part in the city's first-ever 'Trunk or Treat' event Friday from 6:00 to 8:00 PM in the City Hall Parking Lot.

Communities across the country are finding this a safe and fun way for youngsters to enjoy the Halloween festivities with other kids of their age in a safe environment and without the dangers of crossing dark streets at night.

Here's the deal: Load up your trunk with the candies, fruits and other goodies you would distribute to kids trick-and-treating and bring the kids and the car over to the City Hall parking lot.

There, the cars will be arranged so kids can go from one to another with their treat bags.

All are invited to come in costume (no scary costumes or weapons) and to decorate their vehicles for the event, too.

The Recreation Division is sponsoring the event, along with the business community and other local organizations.

There will be awards for Best Dressed Car, Best Family Costume and Best Costume Overall.

Judging will take place at 7:00 PM. The event is free and open to Plainfield residents. For more information, contact the Division of Recreation at (908) 753-3097.
