Hundreds attend Safe Halloween for Kids event in Quincy
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -- Hundreds of kids got an early start to trick-or-treating Wednesday night.
It was all part of the Safe Halloween for Kids event. A huge line wrapped around the Eagles Nest Hotel in Quincy. Local businesses took over hotel rooms to hand out candy to children, give them a quick scare, or even get their picture taken. Organizers say this first time event gave families the opportunity to have an extra night of Halloween fun in a safe environment.
