Cherry Hill guarantees a Happy Halloween

Sam Berman, For Eastside

Halloween: the only time of year you are supposed to take candy from strangers. Oct. 31 marks one of the best holidays that takes place during the year.

Kids can run around and go from house to house to collect as much candy as they can in one night. Although Halloween typically revolves around sweet goodies, this holiday isn’t just about the candy collecting. The festivities that take place has people excited about Halloween, too.

Some of the most popular and best spots to go trick or treating in Cherry Hill include neighborhoods such as Siena, Woodcrest, Short Hills and Fox Hollow. All of these neighborhoods have the following things in common: the close proximity of the houses and the massive size of the neighborhoods. If you are looking to get a large sum of candy that are not simply “fun size” bars this Halloween, these neighborhoods are highly recommended.

Not only can you trick or treat on Halloween, but there are many other events that you can get involved in. Springdale Farms offers some events and attractions including the ongoing annual corn maze and hayrides. Neighboring communities have events as well such as haunted hayrides at Indian Acres in Medford and Creamy Acres in Mullica Hill. For young children, the Cherry Hill Public Library is hosting a Halloween dance party followed by trick or treating on October 31.

On Monday, Nov. 3 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., you can give back to the community by donating the extra collected candy to Dental Arts of South Jersey in Voorhees. All of the donations are sent to our troops overseas. If the feeling you receive after participating isn’t rewarding enough, you will receive a goodie bag in exchange for the candy and contribution.

Cherry Hill ensures to offer a variety of occasions for community members to attend on Halloween. If you are looking to have the best time and maximize your candy collection, Cherry Hill presents the best options.
