ROSELLE, NJ - Chills and thrills were about at the Abraham Clark H.S. on Friday evening as the   borough held their annual Haunted House and Trunk-or-Treat.

Car trunks full of candy, and lots of scary decorations made for a very festive event. The Roselle Recreation, Police and Fire departments were at the event and handing out candy to the many who came out on what was a very cold night. The Police department also gave children glow stickers and bands for trick or treating on Halloween night. 

Some of the bravest adults and teens showed that bravery by going through the Haunted House that runs through the inside of the high school. If the flashing lights and coffin didn’t scare you, the zombies jumping out of the lockers defiantly sent you running for the door. 

Mayor Christine Dansereau, the Roselle Borough Council, and the Department of Recreation presented the annual event in an effort to provide a safe and fun environment for the children of the borough.
