New Milford's annual Halloween Trunk or Treat lived up to expectations.

The Oct. 31 festival of friendly ghouls, plenty of laughter and costumed kids of all ages graced the village center from stem to stern along Main Street and Bank Street for two hours.

Admission was free but each participant was asked to bring one bag of candy to New Milford Parks & Recreation to help defray the event's cost.

Among the highlights was an animated performance by the "Thriller Flash Mob!" on the Village Green.

The event was sponsored by A. Howland & Associates, the town and the Friends of Sullivan Farm.
