Saturday afternoon there was perhaps the largest crowd ever in attendance for the annual Trick or Treat with Mayor Keith Snyder.

This year it was noted that there were many adults in the group with their children, and many of the grown-ups were also decked out in costumes.

The annual walk around Lincoln included 17 stops at downtown businesses. The group ended their walk at City Hall, where everyone received candy treats from the mayor.

Immediately following this event, everyone was encouraged to return to the downtown square for the first-ever Trunk or Treat. Area businesses that are not located on the square had the opportunity to decorate the trunks of their vehicles and pass out candy to dozens and dozens of kids.

Also going on downtown was a chili supper on the east side of the square. There was traditional red chili, and a special white chili was also being sold. Also available were hot dogs for the kids.

The downtown activities this year were a partnership effort between Main Street Lincoln, the city of Lincoln and the Lincoln Park District.
