YMCA Brings Halloween To Town A Week Early

Trick or treat, trick or treat give me something good to eat is a popular saying heard around this time of year. Well that trick was replaced with a trunk at the YMCA trunk or treat event today.

A line of what seemed like hundreds of miniature pirates, fairies, super heroes and their parents wrapped around the West Family YMCA earlier today.

They were all in line anxiously awaiting to get to the candy that was being passed out of people's trunks.

After getting bags full of candy, the trunk or treaters could participate in games, get their faces painted and even pet some horses.

"In this area, it's just not common to see horses. Most of these kids have never seen a real live horse. So this is just an opportunity for them to come out and touch them and pet them," Dee Rung, Ghost Rider

"It gives the community a place to go that is safe. If you have a neighborhood that you are not comfortable walking around in, this gives you that opportunity, " said Alicia Davis, Marketing Director West Family YMCA

The event was free and open to the community, and will probably leave a lot of parents with very hyper children tonight.
