BALTIMORE — Families from Brooklyn, Cherry Hill, and all the neighborhoods of South Baltimore came together for a Trunk or Treat at South Point Halloween night.

The event is in it’s second year and Officer Rosa Ramirez with the Baltimore Police Department was happy to deck out her patrol car and meet the kids.

“This is why I like doing what I’m doing because I get to meet kids like him and try to convince them to be police officers which I didn’t need to convince this one,” Ramirez said.

Weller Development Corporation invited the people around Port Covington out for a safe night of fun with free food, candy and arts and crafts.

“It’s so good to see everybody get together for a change, we don’t get this a lot,” said Kiana Sewell a parent who was at the event with her family. “To see everybody come together working together to do this it’s pretty fun and I like to take the kids out and do stuff for them.”

Marc Broady with Weller Development Corporation is working to transform Port Covington.

“This is an area that has seen decades of disinvestment,” Broady said. “Folks that are involved in the joint venture came together and saw an opportunity to improve the neighborhood and also improve the property taxes for Baltimore City.”

Beautiful families who live in Baltimore's southern district, looking towards a brighter future for all of the little heroes that came out tonight.

“A lot of kids think that bad things are always happening and they see stuff that’s good happening,” 11-year-old Caeden Edwards said.
