CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -- Kind of a dreary night for trick or treaters in Chicago, but that didn't stop them.

The Family Pavilion at Navy Pier was filled Saturday with families dressed in a variety of costumes.  We found Minions, clowns, robots and even a little girl dressed up as the Eiffel Tower.

The kids were able to do some trick or treating inside and show off their costumes.  Costumes ranged from creepy to creative, someone even let in a dancing llama.

Others braved the damp afternoon and headed outdoors.

We found a family going door to door in the Wrigleyville neighborhood.  Matthew Stephens said his costume was, a little last minute.

“So, for right now maybe a chef/golfer/blonde," said Stephens.

He's also the father of a rather short Captain America.

A lot of Chicagoans we met were just glad it wasn’t cold and snowy like last year.

It was glass half full for a group made up of three ninja turtles, a gorilla and the Morton Salt Girl, complete with rain jacket and umbrella.

“It is absolutely perfect, unplanned but it works," said Karolina Trujillo.

She said it almost wouldn't be Halloween without a little dreary weather.

“It's October in Chicago.  This is expected, this is what Halloween should be like."
