“Trunk or Treat is an event where residents, local organizations and businesses bring their vehicles, decorate them, pop the trunk and hand out treats. It has become one of the most popular events in Brick Township and Mayor Ducey and the Council wanted to make sure it was available to Brick’s young people this year,” township officials said.

Advance registration is required and no one will be admitted without a receipt. This will be strictly enforced. Receipts will be checked at the gate.
Trunk or Treaters will walk in one direction and will be spaced out to comply with COVID-19 social distancing guidelines.
Masks are required for all participants.’
