It wasn't Halloween and it wasn't Main Street but there still were more than 1,000 people, tens of thousands pieces of candy and plenty of frightful fun at Saturday night's trunk-or-treat in the parking lot of St. Rose of Lima Church.
Rob Griffin, an organizer, said he wasn't sure how many people would attend the event, which was put together at the last minute Thursday after the town's annual trick-or-treating tradition on Main Street was called off.
He and the Rev. Bob Weiss of St. Rose stood marveling at the size of the crowds waiting to get through the trick-or-treating line, which wound its way around the circumference of the large parking lot.
"I told you," Weiss said.
Griffen said that the parking lot quickly reached capacity at 7 p.m., which was to have been the start time. Trick-or-treaters were then directed to park at the now shuttered Lexington Garden or Caraluzzi's suparmarket.
