SPOTSWOOD, NJ - It was a beautiful day yesterday to enjoy some Halloween fun and residents and even the Spotswood Police Department celebrated the fall favorite in style.

A handful of trick or treaters hit the sidewalk early to begin the quest for candy while other waited until later in the afternoon to start ringing doorbells. The Spotswood Police were of course out and about to make sure everyone stayed safe. However, this year they reveled in the day themselves, posing for pictures using selfie sticks with costumed children and residents much to the delight of everyone involved.

Later on in the day many people headed over to the Spotswood High School to take part in the fourth annual Truck or Treat,which was sponsored by the Spotswood Recreation Department. Pizza and entertainment was provided by Music in Motion. Prizes were also handed out for best costumes and decorated trunks.

The Ryan's welcomed many trick or treaters that came by to see their amazing Halloween display. The glow from the eerie lights was visible from the surrounding streets near Eaton Avenue. Some children stood awe-struck and creeped out on the foot of the driveway, never venturing inside the mad scientist lab/garage to get their candy. Others enjoyed the display and ventured undaunted to get candy and a balloon animal despite the scary sounds and creatures.

Another Halloween has come and gone. November has snuck up once again and oh yes, there are only 56 shopping days until Christmas in case anyone was wondering.
