Young and Old Enjoy Halloween in Lubbock

The ghost and goblins are out in full force, and here on the South Plains Halloween celebrations have been going on all day. 

At Coronado High School, students opened their classrooms to some special trick or treaters. 

 "We've invited many of the special needs children from all over the school district to come to Coronado and it's a school wide project," said Mary Jane Sampson Hospitality Educator at Coronado High School.

 One hundred and sixty-five special need students filled the hallways filling their bags with goodies. 

"Our kids have been studying about how to work with special need children and it's a good community project for them," said Sampson.   

"It's really an experience to help someone else and something the kids can't do you can help them have an experience," said Senior Andrea Zuniga.  

And the kids couldn't be happier. 

"Many times they cannot express verbally but you can see the excitement in their eyes and they have been so excited for the last two weeks," said Sampson.   

But kids aren't the only ones cashing in on the fun this Halloween.  At University Medical Center their annual chili cook off kicked off as well as a pumpkin decorating contest and a booth and costume contest, all raising money for a good cause.

"All the proceeds go to children's miracle network.  Last year we raised about $4,600 this year we are going for $5000," said Director of Children's Miracle Network Kathy Reasoner.
