PLAINFIELD, NJ — The rain didn’t stop Plainfield's annual Halloween Trunk or Treat celebration at City Hall on Thursday. There was fun for all children at the event, including trunks full of delicious candy, a haunted truck provided by the Plainfield Police Department, and Halloween music that got participants excited for the festivities.

“The Division of Parks and Recreation’s annual Trunk or Treat is always a delight. We are glad to have the support and participation of all community partners and employees from the City of Plainfield,” said Veronica Taylor, Superintendent of the Division of Parks and Recreation.

The event was well attended by citizens, with elected officials, Mayor Adrian O. Mapp, and council members Elton Armady, Steve Hockaday, and Charles McRae. Also participating in the festivities were Union County Freeholder Rebecca Williams and Acting Union County Prosecutor, Lyndsay V. Ruotolo.
