The Hampton Bays community has pulled together to provide a spur-of-the moment trick-or-treating event for the kids at Hampton Bays High School, on Wednesday, where nearly 300 people sought shelter during Hurricane Sandy.
The event, which was planned over Facebook, is bringing in hundreds of people, their cars decked out for Halloween and their trucks full of candy.
The event started, according to Rick Nydegger, of Hampton Bays, three moms, Nancy Hughes, Julie Lofstad and Dara Bennett, who wanted to provide Halloween for their kids since many Hampton Bays streets remain flooded and impassable due to downed power lines and trees.
The Hampton Bays School District jumped on board and is providing security for the event, which will run until 6 p.m.
