Kids went trick-or-treating early at Tailgate Halloween

Posted: Updated:

The 27th annual Tailgate Halloween event took place in Uptown Beckley on Saturday.

50 community organizations gave candy to more than 800 kids who were in their costumes.

The event started as a way to give kids a safe atmosphere to trick-or-treat.

"I think that it's just really fun and I really love it about how everyone hands out candy," said Alex Almonte who dressed as Uncle Si from the popular television show Duck Dynasty.

Tailgate Halloween is always the Saturday before Halloween.
