IRON MOUNTAIN - Local law enforcement officials reported a quiet Halloween night.

There were no major incidents in Dickinson, Iron, or Florence counties.
Also, officials said that the number of trick-or-treaters appeared to be down this year in most areas, except for the Kingsford Heights.
Officials cited more Halloween night activities, such as parties and trunk or treat events, and the weather as possible reasons for the decrease.
Dawn Pisoni, recreation director for the Windsor Recreation Authority, added that the Windsor Center's second annual Halloween party and haunted house was a success.
"We didn't charge admission for the haunted house last year, so we don't have exact numbers on if attendance was up or down," she said. "But, the lines were long and everyone seemed to really like it."
Proceeds from the haunted house will go toward after-school recreation activities at the Windsor Center, located at 612 W. Adams St. in Iron River.
