The Woodbridge Volunteer Fire Department is holding its 5th Annual Halloween “Truck or Treat” event on Monday, October 31st from 5-8pm. The event is free, rain or shine. The fire trucks will be decorated for the holiday and children can “truck or treat” in a fun and safe setting. Donations of candy are appreciated and can be dropped off in the Firehouse lobby M-F, 8-4, leading up to the event. A free dinner of hot dogs, hamburgers, soup and more will also be served. At approximately 7:15 p.m. we will celebrate with a spook-tacular fireworks display.
Due to the popularity of this event, Route 114 between Meetinghouse Lane and Newton/Center Road will be closed from 4:30 – 9 p.m. No parking will be allowed on Beecher Road between Route 114 and Woodside Drive or on Newton Road from Route 114 to Burnt Swamp Road. Parking is available at the Old Firehouse, on Meetinghouse Lane, at Town Hall and Amity Regional High School.
Additionally, public access to the Fitzgerald property will close from 2 – 9 p.m. to allow for the safe set-up of the fireworks demonstration.
This free community event started when Hurricane Sandy made it impossible for local children to Trick or Treat in 2012. The Woodbridge Volunteer Firefighters opened up the firehouse—complete with costumes, candy, and decorated fire trucks—allowing families to safely celebrate the festivities in the midst of downed trees and widespread power outages. The response to “Truck-or-Treat” was so overwhelming firefighters made it an annual event growing from 2,000 participants in 2012 to close to 3,200 in 2015!
