ROSELLE/ROSELLE PARK, NJ - Halloween for 2016 has officially come to an end. With so many events it was both a trick to get to all events, and a real treat to see all of the great costumes.

To round out the events, St. Joseph School in Roselle had their Trunk or Treat on Monday night in the parking lot behind the school. Lots of cars were decorated and people giving out candy. They had music, games and a dance contest!

The last event is by far the most popular and well known, “Trick or Treat on Bender Ave.” in Roselle Park. What looked to be a few thousand people showed up, most in costume, roamed the several block area. While the children were getting their candy, this event is more of a social event for the adults, many of which were in costume. The residents once again did not disappoint with some incredible decorations. With the presidential election coming up next week, there of course had to be a couple of Trump/Clinton displays. 

Be sure to check out our photo gallery of costumes.
