ROXBURY, NJ - About 90 families got into the Halloween spirit at this year's R-R-Roxbury event sponsored by Roxbury Recreation and Roxbury Public Schools, said Sandie DiDomenico a Roxbury Recreation program director.

"We had a great turnout ... at the Roxbury High School track," DiDomenico said. "We had about 90 families register, and approximately 350 attendees."

At the annual gathering, people set up "houses" along the track that are then visited by costumed children. The houses can be elaborate or simply decorated tables with candy. The event is a way for youngsters to enjoy the holiday safely, DiDomenico said.

This year's R-R-Roxbury was supported by the Roxbury High School Interact Club and Key Club, which provided more than 25 volunteers to run the games, "which included ‘Mummy Wrap’ and ‘Zombie Chase,’" DiDomenico said.

She especially thanked the Roxbury Rotary Club for donating candy, Ashley Farms for donating two large bins of pumpkins, Walgreens for donating mummy wrappings, the Roxbury Area Chamber of Commerce for donating cider and the Roxbury Fire & EMS Department for attending.

Cliff’s Ice Cream, Joe’s Pizza and Roxbury Diner supplied prizes for house contest winners, DiDomenico added. She also thanked the Roxbury Recreation Committee for volunteering.
