NISSWA — There were far more treats than tricks as the students at Nisswa Elementary School - of course, all in costume - trick-or-treated through downtown Nisswa on Monday, Oct. 31.

Students started by going through First Western Bank & Trust, then walked down the Paul Bunyan Trail to the train car before crossing Main Street and getting candy from downtown businesses along the way.

Business owners were in on the fun as well, with many in full costume as they greeted the students.
