Neighboring Towns Welcome at North Branford's Trunk or Treat!

Just next to Branford, where Halloween has been postponed to Nov. 7, North Branford's CT Sportsplex is hosting a Trunk or Treat if you're looking for some trick-or-treating fun.

While many towns – including Branford, North Haven and East Haven – have chosen to postpone trick-or-treating to Nov. 7, Halloween is on in North Branford with the Connecticut Sportsplex hosting a Trunk-or-Treat event starting at 5 p.m. tonight.

State Rep. Vincent Candelora, whose family runs the Sportsplex, is happy to offer this option to residents and those in surrounding communities.

"Our neighboring towns are welcome, too," said Candelora. "Just bring candy and kids."

Don't know what Trunk-or-Treat is? People pull into parking spaces with the trunks of their cars facing out and kids can go from car to car 'trunk'-or-treating. You can deck out your trunk with Halloween decor or just bring your candy to hand out. 

Cars can start filling up the parking lot at 5 p.m. with the Trunk-or-Treat starting at 6:30 p.m. The fieldhouse will be open while the cars line up. Kids can enjoy the playscape and pizza, hot dogs and sodas will be available for $2. 

"We just wanted to provide a place where everyone can enjoy Halloween in a safe environment," said Rep. Candelora.

And don't forget, Patch's Best Halloween Costume Contest (in America) is underway so be sure to snap those photos and upload them to the gallery for a chance to win $5,000.

Many thanks to Jenn McCulloch for bringing us this story and the CT Sportsplex for putting such a well organized event on such short notice. All who participated were generous and gracious. This really made my boys Halloween such a special occassion. I hated the look of disappoint my little guys had when I told them trick-or-treating had been cancelled tonight. After braving the storm having to take away something they were looking forward to for so long was hard - this more then made up for it. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU all involved.
