Last night, the cold weather didn't slow down the trick-or-treaters in Swift Current.
Plenty of houses saw hundreds of costumed kids showing up, asking for either a trick or a treat. These candy collectors were able to brave the cold thanks to their desire for sugary sweets, which brought them to homes like Jessica and Justin Perrault's house.
The Perrault's managed to hand out candy to 561 ghouls and goblins, giving each of them a pre-packed candy bag.
"We made 548 [bags of candy] to start because we didn't know how many we were going to need," said Jessica. "We got 507 kids last year, so we made a few extras. Then we had to make a few more by the end on the fly."
The Perraults purchased 2,400 pieces of candy this year and burnt through the vast majority of it during Halloween night.
Their yard is one of some renown, as they decorate it every year. Kids know that they can always find amazing decorations at 267 Sixth Avenue Southeast. The display is so huge, it takes the Perraults three weeks to set it up.
"We just love seeing the kid's expressions when people are walking by or turning down the street," said Jessica. "It just absolutely warms your heart."
The Perraults even managed to win second place in the inaugural Swift Current Halloween Haunters competition.
