MILLBROOK, N.Y. -- Trick-or-treaters love running from house to house, filling up their bags with candy and squealing with delight over scary decorations -- and lots of adults get a big kick out of the Halloween ritual as well.
But what do they do if they live in a rural area like the town of Washington in Dutchess County and homes aren’t easily accessible?
Its Recreation Department has an answer for that: Trunk-or-Treating.
Folks will be able to park at the Millbrook Fire House on Saturday, Oct. 29, and hand out chocolate bars, candy corn and other goodies from the trunks of their cleverly decorated cars.
Participants should plan to be at the fire house’s parking lot at 11 a.m. They can register for the event by calling the recreation department at (845)-677-8278.
Costumed children can arrive around 11:15 a.m. to begin “Trunk-or-Treating” and then stay for the Halloween parade at 12 noon.
The little ghouls and goblins should bring their own bags.
The fire house is at 20 Front St. in the village of Millbrook.
Entertainment for the kiddies will be provided by Hudson Valley musician Eric Rosi-Marshall.
