TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Princesses, animals and super heroes could be spotted all around Topeka on Wednesday.

The Children of Easter Seals Capper Foundation's Kidlink Preschool dressed up for Halloween. They wore their costumes and were trick or treating throughout the Capper facility Wednesday morning.

That's not the only place you could catch kids in costumes.

All of McEachron Elementary's little monsters marched around the school for its annual Halloween parade. The students and faculty - decked out in costumes from ninja turtles to princesses - paraded around the halls.

The kids enjoyed Halloween treats in their classrooms afterward.

In the evening hours, while the neighborhood streets filled with trick or treaters, so did the Living Learning Center at Washburn University. College students invited youngsters over to collect all sorts of yummy streets.

Meantime, a local church hosted a Halloween alternative activity. Food, games, cake walks and more were all part of Halloween fun sponsored by Calvary Church of God in Christ in an event at Avondale East school.

Halloween parades also brought princesses, super heroes and the usual cast of creatures to places like Fairlawn Plaza and Security Benefit to celebrate the holiday.
