What’s better than trick-or-treating door-to-door? How about trick-or-treating on the boardwalk?

The event will run from 12 noon to 5 p.m. and feature prizes, pumpkin painting, a dog parade and a kids’ costume parade. There will also be the aforementioned trick-or-treating, plus pumpkin chunkin’ and fireworks.
