CAMDEN, NJ — As part of its effort to provide safe Halloween options for children and families, the city is calling all ghouls and goblins to attend its Trunk-or-Treat on Oct. 30 at the Camden Waterfront. 

The Trunk-or-treat is a community-based event in which Camden’s participating trick-or-treaters walk through the Waterfront lot and receive candy from decorated car trunks. Camden’s Department of Human Services is bringing back the event for a second installment after successfully attracting around 500 participants in 2018. 

Trunk owners are asked to arrive at the Adventure Aquarium at 4 p.m., but late arrivals will be accepted as the event will continue until 8 p.m. The city expects anywhere from 300 to 500 children to attend, so trunk owners should bring enough candy and treats to supply this number of trunk-or-treaters.

In order to prevent trunk-or-treaters from taking excess amounts of candy, trunk owners are expected to remain near their stations throughout the event. Candy must be pre-wrapped and sealed.
