Halloween Events in Lakewood – Safe and Fun for All

Posted on October 26, 2011 By

The Lakewood Township Committee and the Lakewood Recreation Department are inviting residents to enjoy Halloween in a safe and fun way. The fun begins on Monday, October 31, 2011, at the Lakewood Town Square, Clifton Avenue and Third Street, Lakewood, beginning with face and pumpkin painting from 5:00-6:00 p.m., and a costume parade and contest on the stage for children ages 10 and under at 6:00 p.m.

Best Costume certificates for first, second, and third place will be awarded to children in five age groups: children ages one and two; three and four; five and six, seven and eight, and nine and ten. All children will receive a Trick or Treat bag filled with candy.

Shop Rite of Lakewood donated all the Trick or Treat bags.  Members of the Lakewood Police Department, the Lakewood Fire Department, and the Lakewood EMS donated all the candy and filled the bags for the children.

According to Jeff Shapiro, supervisor of recreation for Lakewood Township, the Township Committee, police, firemen, and EMS created this event to ensure the safety of children. Shapiro says, “Children will receive a bag of candy so they don’t have to go door-to-door throughout the Township in the dark.”
