The Greenwood Lake community celebrated Halloween on Sat., Oct. 31. Although this year was different due to the COVID-19 pandemic, residents still had fun and enjoyed themselves on Halloween.
Children of all ages were seen trick or treating decked out in costumes and wearing masks. Houses and storefronts were decorated festively with scary and friendly Halloween displays. Many homeowners had candy tables set up allowing trick or treaters to safely help themselves to individual treat bags, while others greeted children with masks as they handed out candy.
Some residents came up with unique ways to deliver candy such as having a slide set up and sending the candy sliding down to land in the children’s buckets. After sunset, Greenwood Lake Scout Troop Pack 121 held a Drive Thru Terror Trail. The annual spooky walking trail was changed to a safe drive thru event.
Cars lined up on Vine St. and entered the spooky trail being greeted and scared by clowns, ghosts, monsters, zombies, wolves and much more. The trail was decorated frightfully with large decorations, haunting music and a scare around every corner.
Due to the pandemic, the annual Halloween parade and costume contest was cancelled – members of the Fire Department “wished everyone a safe and Happy Halloween” and look forward to next year’s celebrations.
