Saturday night kicked off the Halloween spirit in chilly fashion as dozens of southeastern Wisconsin communities spent the night out trick-or-treating.
The temperatures dipped into to high 30s and low 40s for Cedarburg. A night that might be better suited for hot cocoa by the fire can wait when free candy, scares and an opportunity to dress up are on the line. The Halloween door-to-door journey for kids and their parents took a little extra preparation thanks to the chill in the air.
“I have a lot of layers on, I have five here and three here,” said Katherine Roberts.
However, the unseasonably cold temps didn’t stop the masses on a mission. Just ask Brian Koehler who passed out the treats.
“I’m surprised we had so many kids,” said Koehler. “I had to go back to the store to get more candy because we ran low.”
