U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Office of Field Operations, Port Huron hosted the 5th Annual CBP Blue Water Bridge Trunk or Treat on Saturday, October 26, 2019. Despite the poor weather conditions, thousands of people converged under the Blue Water Bridge to take part in the event. For more than two hours, local children and their families visited each trunk of a first responder to receive their treats. Even the rain couldn’t deter the families from one of the area’s favorite events of the season.
CBP Officers and Border Patrol Agents from the Marysville Station were joined by the St Clair County Sheriff’s Department, Port Huron Police Department, Port Huron Fire Department, Fort Gratiot Twp. Fire Department, Memphis Police Department, and Tri-hospital EMS in what has become one of the largest Trunk or Treat events in the Blue Water Area!
“We are honored to provide a safe and secure event for children and their families. This is our community too and we are extremely proud of all our partners that participated to make this the best Trunk or Treat yet.” said Area Port Director Michael Fox.
“Even with gloomy weather conditions, it was awesome seeing smiles on the faces of the children and law enforcement/public safety personnel who all came together to support our community. What a fun event!” stated Port Huron Police Captain Marcy Kuehn.
A special thanks goes to all those who personally donated time and candy for the event and a special thank you to Oldtimecandy.com who donated over 400 pounds of candy for the event.
