EUGENE, Ore. -- Little goblins and ghouls got a chance to trick-or-treat early this year at the annual Haunted Market.

Hundreds of people packed into the 5th Street Public Market Monday night for the spook-tacular two-night event.

The Haunted Market was held from 6-8 p.m. with trick or treating, giant carved pumpkins, face painting and more, all to benefit food for Lane County.

"It was a great way for us to have a community event that everyone could take part in and invite all the families down and provide a safe trick-or-treating scenario for all the families in town," said Food for Lane County’s Casey Barrett.

"I think it's really cool seeing other people's costumes and the decorations are also really cool,” said trick-or-treater Anna Lind. “I like how they transformed this place into something that's sort of like a haunted house."

Food for Lane County said Monday night's turnout was so great that they likely collected as much food as they did in both nights combined last year.

If you missed it Monday night, you get another chance -- it's happening again Tuesday evening from 6-8 p.m. at 5th Street Public Market.

Entry is $3 or three cans of food per person.
