Families Go Out Trick-or-Treating in Northern Nevada

Posted: Updated:

 

Kids all over northern Nevada dressed up in some spooky costumes and went out to get some candy on Thursday.

It's a tradition that keeps on giving... As long as you're wearing a costume! Halloween was back and families were excited to go door-to-door for some trick-or-treating. Some started as early as 5:30 p.m. in an effort to get as much candy as possible. I talked to a family who loves to hand it out each year.

"It's awesome to see all the little kids, and what they decide to wear," said Mike Curtis of Reno. "Sometimes, when the adults get into it, like I do, it's great to see that as well."

When it got darker, the neighborhoods became packed with eager children. I talked to some of them about what they like most about Halloween.

"I think it's all the costumes because it's kind of, like, a day where you can not be yourself," said Ashleigh Deskin of Reno. "You can just be someone else."

Some believe Halloween is a holiday that really brings a neighborhood together.

"I think it's the fact that you're getting closer to your neighbors than you do on Christmas," Curtis said. "Christmas is all about going inside and being with your family, and Halloween is all about going around to your neighbor's house, and the neighbors are opening the doors to you."

While the majority of kids had a safe and fun Halloween, the Lyon County Sheriff's Office says they have had several reports in Fernley of candy bars with foreign objects pushed into them. Deputies say the objects were from a plastic utensil and a push pin. This serves as a reminder to all parents to check their children's candy before allowing them to eat it. The Sheriff's Office says they are investigating the incident to determine where the candy came from.
