Trunk or treating has become a popular, safe alternative to the traditional door-to-door trick or treating on Halloween. In Old Bridge, New Jersey, there are multiple of local trunk or treat events your family can attend, including an event at the Shoppes at Old Bridge on Oct. 24, an event at the Friendly’s parking lot on Oct. 13, and events in adjacent towns like Trunk or Treat at the Old A&P Parking Lot in Cliffwood on Oct. 20.
If you plan on participating in a trunk or treat in Old Bridge, follow these tips to make your car the popular display of the evening.
Choose a Theme
Your trunk or treat decorations will really pop if you stick to a theme, like underwater, outer space, witches, or graveyards.
Match Your Costume to the Decorations
Turn your trunk or treat decor into an immersive display by making your costume a part of the themed decorations. Dress up like a character who would live in the setting, and act the part.
Think Outside the Box
Even though it’s called “trunk or treat,” there’s no rule that says you have to keep it all contained within the trunk. Bring tables, chairs, banners, balloons, and whatever you fancy to expand your display into a fuller experience.
Some trunk or treat events will continue after dark, so remember to include colorful lights in your decorations so that your display can shine throughout the evening.
If you need a vehicle to take to a trunk or treat event, the cars and SUVs we have at JAB Automotive LLC offer lots of trunk space.
