Trunk-or-Treating at Cedar Crest College

By Rebekkah Parsons, Staff Writer

With Halloween right around the corner, Cedar Crest College welcomed the community for a day filled with candy, decorated cars, a craft fair and costumes.

Trunk or Treating, new to campus this year, was an event that welcomed community members to dress up and trick-or-treat to a variety of decorated cars around the campus on Sunday, Oct. 19.

In addition to candy, some cars offered games for the trick-or-treaters to play. Campus clubs and sports teams decorated some cars, while local businesses brought others.

Stephanie Lazarou, owner of CruiseOne, said, “This is a great event with great opportunity for business owners.”

As the children walked through campus and got to see all the different decorations, their faces lit up with smiles.

Wendy Goldman, assistant to the Provost, said, “I liked bringing my kids to see where I work and seeing how involved the college students were able to be.”

After a fun adventure throughout the campus, guests were encouraged to head over to the craft fair. They were able to find a variety of items for sale from hand-crafted jewelry to paintings to Scentsy candles.

Event chair, Lynn Pigliacampi, was pleased with the turnout of the event from both the community and the Cedar Crest staff and students. “People went all out to compete for the best car. We had awards for best costumes and there was great vendors at the craft fair,” Pigliacampi said. “Everyone seemed to have a great time based on our turnout.”
