The origin of Gate Night may be in question, but it didn’t stop hundreds of children and families from cruising up Jackson Street in Boscawen on Sunday night. It all started when the emergency department started handing out candy on Jackson Street and then kids went from there down the street. Both Penacook and Boscawen do their trick-or-treating the night before Halloween.

Heather Chandler has been handing out candy for 25 years on the street and it seems to grow bigger every year. “I buy so much more candy and every year I go through it all,” said Chandler. She decorates the front of her house every year and that has grown every year as well.
