Kids get their treats early

Lola, the dog here dressed as Wonder Woman, got plenty of attention in Pequot Lakes Oct. 26 when businesses opened their doors to trick-or-treaters. Pictured with her are Cara Scharenbroich (also dressed as Wonder Woman), Madison Kinnan (dressed as Audrey of Descendants 3) and Ava Grove (dressed as a witch). Travis Grimler / Echo Journal

Children in Pequot Lakes were treated to Halloween goodies early when downtown businesses hosted early trick-or-treating Saturday, Oct. 26.

Children found that any business in town with a small candy corn poster in the window was brimming with treats to hand out. Dinosaurs, video game characters and superheroes were among the countless costumes spotted in town on kids and pets alike.

Faith Boost hosted a Kids Haunty House, and Miss Pequot Lakes royalty hosted a bonfire at Trailside Park with s’mores and juice.

The second annual event was hosted by Community Action of Pequot Lakes and Pequot Lakes businesses.
