One of the favorite holidays for children is quickly approaching. We are only a few weeks away from Halloween, and before you know it the little ghosts, goblins, and superheroes will be ready to don their costumes. In Vineland, this year’s trick-or-treat hours are scheduled for Saturday, October 29, from 4 to 7 p.m.
The Halloween fun will kick-off earlier in the day as Main Street Vineland presents their annual Pumpkin Patch Party from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Landis Avenue Miniparks, at the corner of Landis Avenue and SW Boulevard. There will be games and prizes for kids of all ages, and children 14 and under in costume will receive free Halloween candy. The winner of the this year’s Landis Avenue Downtown Scarecrow Contest will also be announced during the event.
Trick-or-Treaters can begin collecting their Halloween treats at the Vineland Police Department’s annual “Trunk-or-Treat” Family Fun Night on Tuesday, October 25, from 5 to 9 p.m. The event will be held at Gittone Stadium located at 61 West Landis Avenue, and will include hayrides, music, and vendors with decorated vehicles on display for Trunk-or-Treat fun.
