First round or treatment on this NJ lake


It all started a few years ago, at the height of the pandemic.

People were worried about going door to door to trick or treat on Halloween in 2020, so our lake association tried to keep the holiday spirit going by going dock to dock.

About a dozen souls braved the freezing temperatures and got into the cold water to paddle around for tricks or treats.

This year was the third annual Dock-or-Treat event, and the lake was very busy.

The perfect weather probably had something to do with it.

We weren’t even sure if we would be home to participate, but we were there when it started at 2pm and it went on for nearly three full hours.

I had to run to the store several times to fill our candy basket and my daughter had a quick run to the liquor store for the parents.

It was hard seltzer for moms and Bud Lite for dads. Adults get thirsty doing all that paddling.

It was a great community event; young and old got into it this year.

My granddaughters came over and got in on the act and it was a great family day all around.

I don’t usually get too excited about Halloween, but this year was special and it was a much needed joyful celebration in what sometimes seems like a joyless world.
