Local kids incognito score big in the arena of sugary treats today.
The 2nd Annual Scare in the Square event was a hit, drawing thousands of area kids to the Main Street Square in downtown Rapid City Saturday afternoon.
The fun included a costume contest, games, and a downtown wide trick or treating.
Megan Karbowski, Director of Main Street Square, says more than 60 businesses participated by handing out candy.
"The turnout has been fantastic, we've had thousands of people down here, last year we have four thousand trick or treaters, I think we are well above that this year," says Karbowski.
And new this year, Halloween sculptures created by local high school students.
The art is to promote recycling because it's made entirely from recycled materials the students took from the landfill.
"It's all to promote recycling, it has gone over very well, the community has loved it, they love the creativity of the students and the idea that it's completely come from the landfill," says Recycling Educator, Beth Anne Ferley.
Ferley says they plan to make their art showcase a permanent part of the annual event.
