Halloween happenings

ROCHESTER, Minn. – It was a great night to get out and celebrate Halloween, whether that was trick-or-treating or going to one of the many community events in our area.

We stopped by the “Trunk or Treat” party in the parking lot of Redeemer Lutheran Church in Rochester. About a dozen cars lined the parking lot and were decorated with different themes. Kids then went from trunk to trunk to trick-or-treat. Those with the church say this is the third year of doing the event that seems to grow in popularity each year.

“We started it for the neighborhood kids and for our church family to come enjoy Halloween to have a nice place where the kids could come, it was a safe place,” says Larry Stoen with Redeemer Lutheran Church.

Mayo Clinic’s Charter House also hosted their Halloween celebration Monday night. The free event was open to the public and included plenty of candy, popcorn and prizes. Kids even got to take pictures with the Pumpkin Queen.

Kids were also busy tonight across our area doing some traditional trick-or-treating.
