BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Although Halloween isn’t until Saturday, that didn’t stop some local kids from getting an early start on their trick or treating. The season tradition continued as the Berkeley Heights PBA 144 hosted its fourth annual Trunk or Treat on Saturday. 

Hundreds of superheros, princesses and other creatures filled the municipal parking lot waiting for their treats.

The Berkeley Heights PBA started the event four years ago after Hurricane Sandy damaged houses and prevented their kids from trick or treating.

The Trunk or Treat event is  fun, safe, and convenient way for children and families to celebrate Halloween and trick or treat in one location.

Children can walk from trunk to trunk to look at the decorations and receive candy and other treats. This provides a controlled and safe family environment for trick-or-treaters of all ages.

Now, it is an annual Halloween tradition.

For the second year, Pearly Whites Dentistry hosted a pumpkin decorating contest serving donuts and cider to all of the trunk-or-treaters. This year's first prize winner was awarded a Kindle Fire.
