NOW: Local trick-or-treaters brave the snow for candy

MISHAWAKA, Ind. -- Tuesday’s snowfall put no damper on Halloween festivities, at least for trick-or-treaters who were motivated by candy.

Hundreds of trick-or-treaters went door to door at Winding Brook this Halloween, looking to fill their pumpkin buckets with all the treats.

“It’s a great sense of community,” says Mika Whitcroft, who lives in Winding Brook. “Kids can go out, have fun, be creative, express themselves.”

But many of the spooky costumes were hidden under winter jackets, as these trick-or-treaters endured a couple rounds of snowfall on their route.

“I'm dressed up as a skull ninja,” says one little trick-or-treater.

“I changed my costume actually from what I was going to be, I was going to be just a witch but then it got cold, and I put on my sloth costume so now I’m a spell that went wrong,” Whitcroft explains.

Even the brave souls passing out candy had to find creative ways to beat the cold.

“I’ve got my coat on, my hat and gloves on, I have a nice little space heater right here,” says Jennifer Castaneda, who also lives in Winding Brook. “I’ve got my music on so I’m jamming, and the kids are keeping me nice and warm because they’re entertaining and they’re lots of fun to watch.”

This Halloween was chilling in every sense of the word.
