Kids in Southeast Wisconsin embrace 'Snow-o-ween'
WAUWATOSA (CBS 58) -- While the Halloween snow was scary for some, many kids in Southeast Wisconsin embraced it.
"I think we should all know that we should be happy that it’s snow-o-ween," said Braylynn Irby, a student at Lincoln Elementary.
The school held their annual Halloween parade outside despite the snow. The Wauwatosa East High School band led students on a parade route as bundled up parents watched.
"It’s nice to see what we're showing our kids, that things happen, it can snow and the show still goes on," said Principal Michelle Miner.
"Seriously, I love it. It’s so beautiful and balmy out every Halloween," Lisa Ward said sarcastically while handing out candy at the annual Pumpkin Walk in Cedarburg.
Carved pumpkins lined the sidewalks as kids in costumes trick-or-treated at the annual event.
"Ya know what, we’re die-hard," Ward said.
Trick-or-treaters in Menomonee Falls were just fine trading in their costumes for jackets and hats if it meant a bag full of candy.
"100% you do it on Halloween. It's for the kids," said Paige Haefemeyer.
