Duluth, MN- Despite the pandemic, people were still able to make the most of Halloween this year.

In Superior, the YMCA held a drive-thru trick or treat event.

Families were able to drive through the YMCA parking lot to get a socially distant treat.

Organizers say they wanted to make sure kids still had a fun way to celebrate.

"We wanted to make sure we had something fun for the kids to do on Halloween. We always like to pass out some candy and greet the kids on Halloween. We wanted to make sure we're doing it safely, so we just put out a post encouraging folks to come to our drive through trick or treating event," said Jess Melander, Aquatic Director at Superior YMCA.

In Duluth, hundreds of ghosts and ghouls gathered in Canal Park for Trunk or Treat.

The free event was open to kids of all ages and took place in the Lake City Parking Lot.

Families were able to walk around and grab candy from cars decorated for Halloween.

Each car was sponsored by a local business.

"We have taken the time and put certain regulations and stuff in place to make it possible. We have a lot of people showing up, which is awesome. It is great to see all the new faces. Hopefully, we can get some of these kids and people involved with N.Y.S. and also some of our program partners. Also, we are hoping it's good for local businesses as well to help them in this tough time," said Pez Davila, Program Director, Neighborhood Youth Services.
