Traditional trick-or-treating hours for Ocean City will be 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 31.
It is important this year for both trick-or-treaters and families putting out treats to plan for a safe and healthy holiday. The city also will sponsor a Halloween House Decorating Contest. See details and a list of participating homes below.
The Ocean City Skate Park will be host to a Halloween event with prizes for best trick and best costume. The skate will be 4 p.m. to dusk on Saturday, at the park at Fifth Street and Asbury Avenue. Free candy and music will be available.
A list of homes participating in the Halloween House Decorating Contest is posted at www.ocnj.us/halloween.
The contest awards prizes for the top homes in each of Ocean City’s four wards and in a commercial division. Judging will take place Wednesday and Thursday, and winners will be announced on Friday.
