Edison, NJ - On Saturday, the Thomas Edison Center at Menlo Park and the Edison Recreation Department  hosted the 4th annual Trail of Terror and Harvest Fun.   

The event once again featured the popular Trail of Terror, presented by the Edison High School Drama Club.

“Our trail of terror is a huge success and every single year since we’ve been doing this we’ve sold out completely. I know people are disappointed but we only have so many tickets to sell because the Edison High School theater group volunteers to do this play on the trail for us. They’re amazing and we so appreciate all their work,” said Kathleen Carlucci, Museum Director for the Thomas Edison Center at Menlo Park.

The event also included an assortment of entertainment for children of all ages. “Today we had a wonderful day. We had a pumpkin patch and face painting and tattoos. We had carving of pumpkins- we had a magician and a man on stilts, it was really a lot of fun and a perfectly beautiful day,” said Ms. Carlucci

“I love working with the kids and seeing how happy they are to come to the Thomas Edison Center. This is their town and they get to see what we put together for them,” Chitra Yarasani, a volunteer at the center, said.   

Others applauded the event’s ability to bring the community together. “I hope this event stays with us in Edison, because it’s a really good family event,” said Edison Council candidate Joyce Ship-Freeman who was on hand for the festivities. 

Ms. Carlucci credited the work of her team and the Township for putting the event together.  “The trustees and all the volunteers at the Thomas Edison Center, and the Edison Recreation Department and Edison DPW really worked hard today to put this all together.”
