Day-late trick or treat caters to kids of all ages

Princesses and turtles alike roamed the streets of Midway in search of candy Friday.

While weather delayed trick-or-treat for a day, families still enjoyed the Halloween tradition.  Nov. 1 proved an excellent day for trick-or-treat; the weather was warm, breezy and dry, in contrast to the storms of Halloween night.

Many families dressed in coordinating costumes. Some young teens braved the spooky night sans chaperones, while tots slept in strollers.

Jon Maybriar made fresh kettle corn to hand out to the trick-or-treaters, and is friend Luther White donned a costume to help.

Others, such as Court Levering and Shannon Hawkins, sat near fires to to keep warm. Many houses were decorated with cobwebs and lights, and others went so far as to include fog machines.

Overall, the unseasonably warm night was a success, as kids scampered home with undoubtedly enough candy to last until Christmas.
