NORFOLK, Va. - People are getting out and celebrating Halloween, but things look a little different this year because of the pandemic.

Saturday, families came out to a drive-thru “Trunk or Treat” in Norfolk at Lake Taylor High School.

Put on by the Norfolk Police Department and Norfolk Recreation, Parks and Open Space, the spooky event had a first responder's demo, a live radio broadcast, and of course, lots of candy.

“It gives them an avenue to be able to trick-or-treat, and all the costumes on the way in were wonderful and very creative," said mom Linda Faas, who attended the event.
