Probably one of the most creative and enjoyable Halloween experiences Bloomfield residents are able to attend with their families, the Trunk or Treat event, was held on Saturday, October 29. Hosted by the Bloomfield Center Alliance Inc. in the Farrand St. parking lot from 12 pm to 3 pm, it involved prizes for the best-decorated vehicle and plenty of Trick or Treating.
The third place prize was awarded to the owner of the trunk representing and honoring Dios de la Muerte, “The Day of the Dead”, a Mexican holiday that is celebrated on November 1. The second place prize went to the owner of the trunk that exhibited talking creatures from an autumn themed forest. Many of the children enjoyed this trunk immensely, gathering around and listening to the somewhat creepy, but amazingly friendly, creatures that did not fail to engage those who put themselves in their presence. Quite a sight! The owner of the trunk that took home the bacon that day represented Bloomfield Township, the beauty of the season of autumn, and what it has to offer. The Bloomfield Center Alliance Inc. and the spectators of this incredibly fun event were impressed and inspired by the messages that trunk displayed so wonderfully.
Although costumes were not mandatory, many people, both children and adults, were dressed in some of the scariest and most adorable costumes. The children had lots of fun as they enjoyed edible goodies from Jack’s Super Foodtown and went from trunk to trunk, trick or treating a bit earlier than they were probably accustomed to doing.
Boo!- Utiful Costumes All Around
Events such as this Trunk or Treat event are great reminders of how important the aspects of fun and joy are to Bloomfield. Along with efficient medical attention, delectable restaurant menu options, and trendy clothing stores, Bloomfield never fails to deliver a good time for its grateful citizens.
