Thompson Street Halloween 2017

Halloween on Thompson street began as a small community event that has blossomed into a major celebratory happening over the years. It draws crowds of well over 10,000 people, from not only Bordentown but all parts of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York, and grows bigger each coming year! Each year a new theme is explored to the delight of all involved. Previous themes inlclude the Wizard of Oz, The War of the Worlds, and Alice In Wonderland. The displays are augmented by music from area residents and street marches by the Mummers! The event has been featured in many news outlets, including Weird NJ, the Philadelphia Inquirer and WPVI Channel 6 News, and is cited on many websites in their lists of "must-see" Halloween locations in NJ . This entire traditon was founded by Pat Patrizio and Frank Rios, some of the areas most creative artists and well loved personages, and the other Thompson Street residents all create their own displays based on that year's theme! Unfortunately, this yearly endeavor has become more costly with each passing year and despite the voluntary efforts of the whole town, additional support would be greatly appreciated. Please help us to continue this wonderful Halloween tradition for all of the kids of today and the adults who are still kids at heart. Happy Halloween, and thanks!!
