- Halloween won't be here until next week but the celebration has already begun in the Northwoods.
Hundreds of kids took over the streets of Rhinelander Saturday. They all had one goal in mind...candy!
For many of the kids, this was the second time they've gone trick or treating. Hundreds of people got candy at the YMCA's Not So Scary Halloween Trail.
Organizers of the local Halloween events think the fun festivities bring the community together.
"It just about joy and pleasure and seeing our community come together to have a fun day. Of course when the sun shines, it doesn't get any better than this."
Many of the trick-or-treaters also enjoyed showing off their costumes.
"I like candy but I like Halloween because I'm dressed up like Spiderman."
Some kids decided to wear scary costumes.
"I am a headless horse-man."
Some dressed up like everyday heroes.
"My costume is a police man and I get to catch bad guys."
Others paid tribute to their sports idols.
"Why are you dressed up like Jordy Nelson? Is he your favorite Packer? Yes...It's because my dad gives me a haircut like him."
Some of the cutest costumes were worn by the tiniest trick-or-treaters.
"[It's] fun to see how much effort they put into their costumes. The little ones are so timid they don't even want to say trick-or-treat but they sure like to get their candy."
And they'll get more candy when Halloween finally arrives on Friday.
