Trick-or-treaters went â??bats at the libraryâ?? Tuesday evening to celebrate Halloween early at the West Toledo Branch Library.
Excited children paraded into the library dressed in their favorite costumes. Outfits ranged from ninja turtles and witches, to black cats and dragons. Kids were treated to plenty of activities and crafts, including making bat lollipops and grabbing a spooky Halloween book to read.
Councilwoman Lindsay Webb, who dressed as the mop-topped Raggedy Ann, came to celebrate the festivities.
â??The kids are having a bunch of fun, weâ??ve been hanging out here for two hours,â?? she said. â??Itâ??s a great way to celebrate Halloween where itâ??s nice and warm inside.â??
Several local organizations came out for the event. The Toledo Fire Department gave supervised tours through a red fire engine and even sent kids home with free fire alarms. The West Toledo Neighborhood Block Watch, library representatives and city council all had stations where trick-or-treaters could grab some candy.
Polls of the children showed some of the most popular candies were Reeseâ??s Peanut Butter Cups and Hersheyâ??s chocolate bars.
