(WBRE/WYOU) — It was a soggy Halloween night in Schuylkill County.
The bad weather has been halting Halloween plans all over the region, but some folks were determined to get their trick or treating in on Thursday night.
Eyewitness Weather’s Kristina Shalhoup was in McAdoo for her live weather report. She found a few families who braved the rain and wind in search of some Halloween Treats.
During Eyewitness News at 7 on WYOU, Kristina was joined by Vinny Natale, Bryttani Craigle and Scarlett Bjorn. They didn’t seem to mind the weather- they were having a good time on Halloween.
Earlier in the evening, Kristina and videographer Tony Ingargiola met up with others who were out and about trick or treating. They say even with the less-than-ideal conditions, they’re glad they went out Thursday.
“Every year, when I was growing up, we did it in snow, with socks on our hands. We did it, so my kids are doing it,” Melanie Miller said.
“We’re just hitting as many houses early on as we can, so we can get them home early, let them eat dinner, have their baths and go to bed,” Marlene Benitez said.
The kids didn’t seem to mind at all and told Eyewitness News in the end, it was all about showing off their costumes and getting candy.
