Marty Sokoloff of Herning Avenue said the street is definitely a destination
for trick-or-treaters, but the way things have been going the past few years he’s
not sure the homes could handle any extra visitors.
The township allows him to block off the street with barricades from 3 to around 5:30 p.m. to make it safe for the nearly 1,500 kids that walk the street.
His friend John Iasparro joked, “what did you count them?”
Sokoloff said that one of the residents on the street has a clicker that counts the children, because one year he gave away a giant candy bar to each hundredth child that rang his bell.
Sokoloff, a retired teacher, has lived on Herning Ave. for 26 years and said he really enjoys the children visiting the street on Halloween.
His decorations include a cute scarecrow family at the corner of his property, but neighbors just diagonal from him took a more creepy route, featuring a human-like body with a pig head and a coffin filled with a few bones.
However, nothing tops the frightful lawn on Elm Street that is packed with over two-dozen scary creatures ranging from a deranged joker to skeletons.
