From Buzz Lightyear and princesses to goblins and everything in between. No matter what their costume or age, children had a great time at the first trunk or treat. And unfortunately this event had to be moved indoors because of the recent weather.
Josh Lange says, "We kind of had to move it indoors with everything. The idea of Trunk or treat was to have a community wide tailgate party and so what we did is we had some people set up their tailgate stuff on tables in our hall. We have just lots of games and prizes. Just a fun time for the family."
The wicked trick of hurricane sandy put a sour outlook on this year's Halloween festivities but here at home that still didn't stop many from coming out and enjoying some fun.
Lange added, "With the current storm that we had, the weathers just been a little unpredictable so, whether its wind or rain or cold, we figured it was best just to move our festivities inside."
Utica resident Damien Golden brought his family out to enjoy trunk or treat. And says he's glad to see the event moved inside to keep everyone safe.
He says "I feel it's very important. You know its shows the kids we don't have to be outside all the time it shows them we can actually have fun indoors. We can still do things, we can still dress up, we can still have a fun family event and everybody comes out and everybody's safe and warm."
His daughter Imani says, "I think it's really good for the little ones because it's kind of to keep them off the streets and just for them to have a better way for them to experience Halloween in a different way."
