CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - An early Halloween party attracted quite a few costumed characters tonight at the Salvation Army in Cedar Rapids. Kids of all ages were there making crafts, decorating cookies, playing games, and bouncing in a big kettle bouncer. But the real draw? Tick-or-treating from trunks.
Children walked from car to car in the Salvation Army parking lot collecting candy. One 7-year-old said he was having a great time!
"It's just going to be, just, it's a good day. It's just a good day? Why is it a good day? Because getting candy is awesome," Austyn Bair, said.
The truck-or-treating Halloween party was free for everyone. People could also enjoy a warm, fall-themed meal for $5 per plate.
