Focus: Halloweening Tricks & Weather Treats

Tricks and treats are back on this year with the Halloween that wasn’t last year.

And with that comeback comes tricks of the season’s decorating trade and the treat of taking a cruise to sight see the result of all the creativity around the towns.

As the old Addams Family credo goes, the Halloween curb appeal on Rumson-Fair Haven area front lawns had a little creepy, kooky, mysterious, spooky and altogether ooky.

The best part? The decor is still sprouting all over the towns. This was just a smattering of a spooky season prequel that endures for more than just the trick or treating day — sometimes weeks before and after.

The weather has been quite cooperative in getting decorations out and up. And this week’s forecast calls for more sun to shine on the creativity and joy ride to soak up the season.

According to the National Weather Service, what’s on the horizon is below. Check it out.

And while you’re doing that, check out what’s brewing in the area’s witch’s cauldron of decor and tell us where to find the best area haunts! Send your photos to for our next haunt collage.
