Dorothy and the Scarecrow Hide from the Wicked Witch of the West under Glinda’s Dress.
After a rather cold and rainy Friday and Saturday, it was a relief for those planning to participate in the annual Trunk Or Treat on the Orange Fairgrounds to have cool, but dry weather during the event.
This year, organizer Brad Marcus traded in his whoopie cushion costume for a bacon costume. He knows how to stand out in a crowd.
With a portion of the parking lot still closed due to paving, the available parking areas were filled to capacity and the fairgrounds were lined with decorated cars, SUVs and trucks and their owners ready to greet costumed children and hand out candy — in many cases up to 7 or 8 bags full.
Police officer Robert Amarone and Deputy Fire Marshal Jamie Vincent were two of the town employees who cheerfully hand out candy. Two business owners went all-out. Marsha Oliver from Donald Oliver Home Improvement had a Wizard of Oz themed set up, including a tornado and all the characters and the folks from Chef’s Emporium had a haunted house and gave out freshly made candy apples.
The Zuppardi’s Pizza Truck and Chip’s Restaurant Truck provided food for purchase.
Here are some photos from the Oct. 23 event.
