UNION — It was an afternoon of early Halloween fun for the children who took part in the “Treat Or Treat With Chase” event at the Union Walmart Supercenter this past Saturday.

From noon-4 p.m., store associates were busy not only performing their regular duties but also handing out candy, popcorn, and fidget spinners to the children, many of them in Halloween costumes, who visited the store to do some early trick or treating. The costumes worn by the children taking part in the event ranged from characters in popular movie series such as “Scream” and “Toy Story” to such Halloween traditions as witches and other fantastic creatures like unicorns; animals such as peacocks and cats; and royalty and military personnel.

It was a fun afternoon made even more so by the appearance of the celebrity for whom the event was named: “Chase” the police dog from the children’s TV series “PAW Patrol” who met with the little trick or treaters, posed for pictures with them and then afterwards high fived them.

Yes, it was a fun afternoon, but the Halloween fun is far from over as this week in general and Thursday, October 31, Halloween itself, will see more fun with trick or treating, trunk or treat, and fall festival events. Some of those events are:
