It’s debatable whether kids or parents have more fun on Halloween.

But we have a pretty good idea who deserves credit for Wednesday’s costumes in downtown Morristown.

“Mom does most of it,” asserted Donna Bryce. Her son Kyle, now 10, was a vending machine last year. This time, the two of them came as the Golden Gate Bridge. Kyle insists he is the creative side of the team.

“I have a big brain,” the Morristown youth explained.

Will he pay his mom in candy for her labor? 

“No!” he declared, without a nanosecond’s hesitation.

The afternoon throng of trick-or-treaters stretched down South Street from the Green, past participating businesses from the Morristown Partnership and candy-dispensing organizations such as the Presbyterian Church, the Morristown & Township Library and the Mayo Performing Arts Center; to town hall, where the menu included caramel-coated apples.

Bags of chocolate chip cookies from the Stirling Tavern were a hit with Marcus Lee, 13. 

Radishes, herbs and turnips from Grow It Green Morristown

No thanks!

“We’re the trick of trick-or-treat,” joked Erica Colace of Grow It Green.
