Baskerville said, "This was absolutely the most AMAZING Harvest Fest, yet! We had more volunteers, more children and families and people from all over our township coming together to celebrate The Harvest!"

The annual event serves as an alternative for some parents who want a safe place to take their children in costume and keep them occupied.

The dance floor was full until the party ended as happy children danced the night away to their favorite tunes.

"DJ Denise kept the music pumpin' and children and adults moving to the music all night. There were absolutely far too many volunteers to thank them seperately but they will be receiving a small remembrance within the next few weeks!....GRATEFUL for our Montclair Community, that's what I am. Teamwork...Makin' the Dreamwork in Montclair," continued Baskerville.

Numerous volunteers from various organizations helped to make the evening a success. Councilor Renee Baskerville expressed gratitude to the volunteers and organizations, including the Montclair Firefighters, who helped to make the event successful.
