There's a bit of Willy Wonka in all of us so head on over to Pearson Candy Co. (2140 W. 7th St., St. Paul) for an early trick-or-treating at the House of Pearson (with or without costumes).

From 5 to 8 p.m. tonight (Oct. 28), there will be candy bars, carnival games and photos, as well as a chance to win the ultimate door prize: a VIP tour of the candy factory.

There also will be bite-size Halloween candy to buy for your own Oct. 31 event, with part of the proceeds from sales going to the Ronald McDonald House (with funds matched by Pearson).
