It was the coldest Halloween for Milwaukee in more than 20 years, but despite the low temps it did not stop any kids who were on the hunt for candy.

From Waukesha to Shorewood, the trick-or-treaters were out in force.

"I'm Wonderwoman," said Madlyn Jacobson who was trick-or-treating in Waukesha.

Even with the cold weather kids were prepared.

"I have a shirt, a sweatshirt, another sweatshirt and this," said Carson Gratz, pointing to his Freddy Krueger costume.

"The costume would be fourth layer," said Neha Chaturvedi from Shorewood, talking about her 14-month-old daughter.

Some parents considered skipping.

"We almost didn't and then we decided at the last minute we will at least go around the block," said mom Angie Schneider.

But for most this is just your typical Halloween.

"I don't think they are cold, they are excited," said Amy Jacobson who was carrying her kids' jackets.

One Waukesha woman even sat outside eating ice cream while passing out candy.

"This is not bad outside, honestly. This is nothing yet," said Cynthia Salazar. 

And the weather definitely did not dampen anyone spirits.
