After days of power outages and discomfort, parents came together and coordinated a Halloween Trunk-or-Treat celebration at Barnum Woods Elementary School on Friday.
More than 60 children came out adorned in their costumes to trick-or-treat and to spend time with one another.
Todd Weinstein, who has two children that attend Barnum Woods, was one of the parents that coordinated the event.
"It was arranged by parents and spread by word-of-mouth through texting and Facebook," Weinstein said. "People decorated their cars, brought candy and the kids got to celebrate Halloween."
Weinstein said that the event was a great way that children could take their focus off of Hurricane Sandy.
"They got to celebrate and get away from homes that are dark, gas lines and parents who are upset and nervous," Weinstein said. "They got to be kids again for at least an hour in the safely of their school parking lot."
