SPOTSWOOD, NJ - Halloween is on a Saturday this year, which is a plus for two reasons; more time for fun and no one has to wake up early for work or school.

After trick or treaters have headed around the neighborhood, moms and dads can drive down to the Spotswood High School for the fourth annual Trunk or Treat celebration. Trunk or treating was born out of necessity from an unlikely source; Hurricane Sandy. In an effort to allow the children to enjoy some belated Halloween fun in a safe environment following the devasating storm, a unique Halloween tradition developed.

The event is run by the Spotswood Recreation Department. There will be prizes for the best decorated trunks, pizza and a DJ. Festivities begin at 6:30 p.m. and run until 8:30 p.m.

However, cars need to arrive between 6:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. The parking lot will be closed as of 6:30 p.m. to allow children to safely travel from vehicle to vehicle. Cars should park in either the front or side lot of the Spotswood High School.
