WADENA — This is Halloween and with it comes an army of kiddos headed out on the streets and sidewalks in the area.
Keep a close look out for princesses, superheros, Minions and more as they should be out in force enjoying the 60-plus degree day.
Head on over to downtown businesses first to catch them handing out candy from 3-5 p.m.

The fun got started early at Wadena-Deer Creek Elementary where the National Honor Society invited all elementary classes to come out in costume and join them for fun and prizes. With a full load of sugar, the kids will be headed home and ready to take on the multitude of events going on tonight.

While drivers should be extra cautious for people out and about, trick-or-treating groups should also use caution. Be visible, stay on sidewalks, and let adults examine candy prior to eating.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
