POINT PLEASANT — Hundreds of children and families adorned in costumes of every shape and size flooded Community Park for the annual Trunk or Treat event on Tuesday evening.
Dozens of car and truck trunks, decked out for Halloween by many local organizations, businesses and residents, lined the walking path, in preparation for the hundreds of families that lined up to get candy and enjoy the festivities.
From 5 to 7 p.m., children of all ages got a chance to show off their costumes and visit the many different, vibrantly decorated trunks.
Costumes of monsters and ghouls, dinosaurs and superheroes, princesses and food and everything in between, were seen in the park, either running on the playground, in the field or grabbing candy at the trunks. [More photos, page 23.]
Michele Brown and her little one Liam were dressed as Ghostbusters. They were just one of many families who had themed costumes. She told The Ocean Star, “This is just a great opportunity to get together with friends and family and experience Halloween together, dress up and have fun.”
Sheena McClaren of Plethora Boutique, Patty Williams of PJ’s Family Auto and Brian Alvarez of MonAlyssa restaurant were among those not only handing out candy, but promoting local businesses.
