In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, with trees and power lines littering the ground, many kids didn’t get the opportunity to go out trick-or-treating on Halloween.
To help give kids a slice of normalcy, Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano hosted a Community Halloween Party at the Theodore Roosevelt Executive and Legislative Building on Nov. 3.
Families were able to come down and enjoy Halloween festivities. There was also hot breakfast, water and charging stations for cell phones for all who attended. Mangano’s office was decorated as a haunted house, and kids were able to go trick-or-treating to different county offices in the building.
And, of course, there was candy. Lots and lots of candy.
