2019-11-03 Trunk or Treat

The Historical Society of Rockland County invites you to 

Trunk or Treat!
A Halloween Family Fun Day

Sunday, November 3, 2019, 12-4 pm (rain or shine)
Where: HSRC/Jacob Blauvelt House, 20 Zukor Road, New City, NY
Admission: $FREE (but donations are very welcome!)

Keep the Halloween spirit going by joining us on the grounds of Rockland County's historic Jacob Blauvelt House for a fun family day featuring

  • A Trunk or Treat, in which Historical Society volunteers decorate their car trunks in scary ways and give out treats
  • Spooky Rockland stories told by "The Witch of West Nyack" 
  • Face-painting Zombie makeovers
  • Hands-on ghostly kids' crafts to take home
  • Fun "fortunes" told by a mystery guest
  • Open house tours of the 1832 Jacob Blauvelt House (and possibly the barn)

Children (and adults) are welcome to come in costume. And if your pumpkin survived Halloween, bring it along for an informal jack-o-lantern contest, with prizes awarded for scariest, funniest, and most unusual 

For more information, contact the Historical Society of Rockland County at (845) 634-9629 or
