NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - While households throughout the country were gearing up for Halloween on Wednesday, residents in our area without power came together to provide their children and each other with some fun to help wipe away the Hurricane Sandy blues by holding an impromptu Trunk or Treat at the old A&P parking lot in New Providence. The cold and the lack of power was not going to stop the fun!
Several New Providence moms started an email chain and sent text messages alerting friends and neighbors of an impromptu Trunk or Treat.
Resident Sherry Flaherty commented, "We are pulling together as a community after Hurricane Sandy and trying to get back to normal."
Over 100 different families participated in the festivities, which took place in the old A&P parking lot on Central Avenue from 4-6pm.
Trunk or Treat is a fun and safe way to celebrate Halloween. Children trick-or-treat from car to car while families get to socialize and showcase their creative skills with their decorated trunks.
Another resident, Kim Jonny, said "Having our children do their trick or treating in a protected environment with adult supervision is such a great idea."
From ghouls to goblins, princesses to super heros, a good time was had by all.
Based on the positive feedback, this may become an annual event!
