Families who attend the KidsAbility Centre for Child Development had the chance to celebrate Halloween a night early at the centre's annual trick-or-treating party Wednesday.

The night is an opportunity for kids to celebrate the holiday in a relaxed environment. For some, it's a practice run for a second round of trick-or-treating on Halloween night. 

"It's a really good opportunity for them to sort of get a sense of what might actually be in store for them [on Halloween]," said KidsAbility CEO Linda Kenny.

Many families also use the night as an opportunity to showcase their costume design skills. You can check out the photos below.
