A group of kids got a chance to don capes and cowls ahead of Halloween Sunday in Winnipeg.

Youngsters were invited to dress up and attend the Superhero Brunch at the Caboto Centre, where they had a chance to meet and train with some of their favourite masked crusaders.

Kids received a certificate at the end for completing the Superhero Training Academy.

The event was organized by the Frosting Foundation.

Proceeds from ticket sales will be used to buy birthday party supplies for children in hospital, according to the organization.
