Dear Community Partners,
We greatly appreciate your ongoing support of our annual “Trunk or Treat” event benefiting hundreds of Franklin Township youth! Thank you so much for making the Halloween season a special time for our children. On behalf of the Township of Franklin and the Hamilton Street Business District, we would be honored if you would consider joining us as a 2019 Halloween on Hamilton Trunk or Treat exhibitor. The event will be held on Saturday, October 26 th from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm at John’s Plaza Parking Lot, Hamilton Street, Somerset NJ (rain date is Sunday, Oct 27th). Set up will be conducted from 11:00am – 12:00pm. All displays must be completely set up by 12:00pm. We do ask that all Trunk or Treat participants stay until the event is over at 3:00 to avoid cars moving through the areas where children are congregating.
Trunk or Treat is a big Halloween tailgating party! Franklin Township community organizations are asked to decorate their trunks or entire vehicles and hand out candy and/or novelties to children as well as information regarding your organization to parents that stop by. Please note that all treats must be store-bought as our Health Department will not allow items prepared at home. Vehicle decorations should be as creative as possible (Kid-friendly themes, please). Get in the Halloween spirit by dressing up as well! Trunk or Treat is a wonderful opportunity to support Franklin Township and promote your organization to the Township’s tiniest members and their families.
Come out and join the fun! The Trunk or Treat application is attached and we welcome your questions.
