The children shuffled their way through Allen Fieldhouse, the youngest ones being pulled in wagons, collecting candy from an athletic staff filled with the Halloween spirit.

Trick-or-treaters ranged in age from a three-week-old infant to six years old and came from the HilltopChildDevelopmentCenter. Hilltop has provided child care and education for the KU campus since 1972.
