The YMCA was the place to be Saturday for Wausau-area kids before hitting the streets for some post-Halloween trick or treating.
The YMCA, teaming up with the Wausau Police Department, opened up their doors to the community and put on several events for kids of al ages.
There were events in the pool, a climbing wall and a host of games and obstacle courses.
"It's a Halloween party and there's lots of games and lots of fun," said Party-goer Heaven Richey, "it's really fun."
"Because you get candy and you can play games," said Party-goer Lanie Bristol.
YMCA program director Amy Reineking says parents love the event, because it's a safe place for their kids to be on Halloween.
"It's a great way for kids to spend time with their family," said Reineking, "They get to come down and see what the Y is all about. It's just a fun, safe place for them to be."
Reineking says the event usually draws about one thousand people each year.
It was put on with the help of donations from area businesses and volunteer workers.
