BIG RAPIDS TWP.  — Princesses, doctors, ghosts and more roamed the streets of Big Rapids on Friday evening.

While many costumes had added coats, mittens and hats, the chilly weather didn’t deter families from braving the cold for tricks and treats.

Children ran from house to house, bags outstretched and awaiting the next goodie. Orange lights strung around porches lit up the night.

Trick-or-treaters looking to stay warm were able to do so with indoor activities, such as the Halloween Safety Night at Big Rapids Township Fire Department.

The event provided candy, games, cider and other activities indoors. Toothbrushes and plastic firefighter helmet also were given out.
