The month of October brings a number of activities to Plainfield as we settle into autumn. On Halloween weekend, Plainfield's Division of Parks and Recreation hosts two signature events--Saturday, October 29, we've got "Doggie Howl," a dog costume contest, and then on Monday, October 31, we'll have fun with "Halloween Trunk or Treat," with cars decorated for Halloween and filled with treats for our children. Both events take place in the City Hall parking lot, located behind 515 Watchung Avenue. If you want to participate in "Trunk or Treat" by decorating your car, contact Recreation at (908) 753-3097. Click on the images below and print them out--we look forward to seeing you there!
