Halloween festivities are for all ages

Kids of all ages can celebrate Halloween in area communities.

Cannon Falls

Highway construction has forced a change in the annual children's Halloween parade. Due to a Highway 19 bridge project, traffic is being rerouted through downtown.

Instead, Cannon Falls offers Trick or Treat Trot from 4 to 5 p.m. Friday. Children and their parents can walk door to door on the downtown sidewalks, collecting treats at participating businesses.


"Zombie Prom," a Vaudevillian Halloween stage show, will be at 7:30 p.m. Saturday in the Widespot Performing Arts and Community Center. Magic, music and story telling are planned for ages 12 and older. Tickets are $15; call (715) 442-2266 for reservations. People are encouraged to come in costume, and to bring a donation to the Pepin County Food Shelf. Details are at
