Chippewa Falls (WQOW) – Ghouls and Goblins alike were spotted in the Chippewa Valley Wednesday, at the annual Pumpkin Dance.
The dance is a part of Special Kids Day, Inc. Area kids with special needs were able to take a break from school to have some fun. Hundreds of kids were dressed in their Halloween best at the Northern Wisconsin State Fairgrounds. They danced, made friends and even won some prizes. Organizers said the event is about including those who often get forgotten.
“I just want to see the kids have a good time and want to come back, and that’s never been a problem,” said Special Kids Day founder, Tom Leuck. “The kids always enjoy themselves, we put a little extra effort into it.”
Leuck also told News 18 the Pumpkin Dance and other Special Kids Day events are funded through donations. If you’d like to help support these events, click here.
