Tristan Hernandez, 9, Aurora Hernandez, 7 and Phillip Hernandez with their mother Amber Hernandez were among a few thousand people to visit the annual Trick or Treat Trailer to Trailer event hosted by RV Sales in Moriarty. The event brought 1,647 people through the gates, raising $817 and three pallets full of canned goods for Bethel Community Storehouse. More than 100 volunteers donated time to the event, while about 50 businesses and individuals donated money to help buy candy.
