Trunk or Treat brings out heroes, goblins and vampires

First responders celebrated Halloween with the Idaho Falls community at the Real Heroes Trunk or Treat.

Families lined the sidewalk to get some candy at the event. These weren’t your average kids though.

“I am a vampire,” Genevieve said.

There were also butterflies and dragons and even Rapunzel and a lady bug. But some were up to no good.

“I’m going to be mean to people,” said Rosie the pirate. However, her vampire friend disagreed.

“Rosie you have to be nice to people remember you’re a kid,” Genevieve said.

There was also a surprise appearance by the Sanderson sisters all the way from the movie Hocus Pocus in Salem, Massachusetts.

“It’s been 300 years, but we’re back to Idaho Falls,” the sisters said. “Because we smell children. Yes, there are children here. And we love children. And we need them.”

While dressing up is fun, many of the children were there for one reason. Candy. The Sanderson sisters knew what they wanted.

“The children, the children, the children,” they said. “To eat them up, right. Well to grab them and use them to become young. Of course there was a couple of nice firemen over there that would’ve done. And the marine. It got a little hot. We make exceptions.”

Don’t worry. The children were saved by the first responders.

“The organization for this comes from all of our first responders in the community,” said Idaho Falls Mayor Rebecca Casper. “As well as members of the military. And so it’s a great way to bring everyday heroes and real life heroes right into focus, let them have fun showing off and serving the community.”

This was the second year for the trunk or treat.
