For a safer alternative to trick-or-treating, New Jersey kids can collect goodies at family-friendly trunk-or-treats. Instead of wandering door-to-door, young trick-or-treaters can load up their Halloween bags with candy from decorated cars.
These trunk-or-treats—most of which are FREE—take place in parking lots, parks, and on blocked-off streets. They sometimes include parades, costume contests, and other Halloween activities. Another bonus for sugar-crazed kids: Many of these trunk-or-treats take place before Halloween. That means double the loot if you make your plans right!
