It was no trick. The weather was a treat for Halloween in Salina. Ghosts and goblins out trick-or-treating Monday evening enjoyed windy, mild weather.
A large crowd got an early start, packing the Salina Downtown area for the annual Boo-Rama event. Downtown businesses set up shop on the sidewalk and handed out treats.
Alpha Media radio station KSAL broadcast live from the event, and sister station Y 93.7 handed out candy. Salina Liberty football player Joshua Lewis joined the fun, helping downtown business Accessible Home Care hand out treats.
Later in the evening a similar safe trick-or-treat event was held at the Salina Central Mall.
Salina Police also hosted a safe trick-or-treat event. “Cops and Costumes” featured giveaways and fun with police officers.
One of the more popular places in town to trick-or-treat the old-fashioned way was the Highland Avenue area. Large groups of trick-or-treaters went door-to-door seeking treats.
Several churches hosted events, as did Kansas Wesleyan University.
