Zombie Orchestra serenades trick-or-treaters


It may not be an official holiday, but lots of people still have strong Halloween traditions.

The U.S. Census Bureau Estimates there were 41 million trick-or-treaters in the U.S. last year, ages five to 14. On West Boulevard in Rapid City, a small fraction of those 41 million children line the streets to get their candy.

But some unconventional traditions have also taken life during Halloween on West Boulevard. The Knowels family has created the Zombie Orchestra, serenading trick-or-treaters as they pass by their home. It's a tradition they hope to continue on the hectic street each year. "It is very, very active every year, but this year is going to set all record's I predict, it's absolutely been phenomenal," said Zombie Orchestra member Bruce Knowels.

"It's just so much fun!" said Kat the Pretty Witch. "Kids just love it they just get a kick out of it. When else can you go door to door and knock on it and get free candy?"

Homeowners say West Boulevard is very busy every Halloween. Kat the Pretty Witch says she end up spending up to $500 on candy every year.
