Trick-or-treaters dressed in costume took to the streets of Fort McPherson Saturday, hoping to turn their empty sacks into treat-filled treasure troves.

Costumes ranged from comic book superheroes to real-life heroes, like firefighters and Soldiers, and traditional outfits ,like princesses and fairies.

To help keep things safe, members of the Fort McPherson police department and select Soldiers maintained positions at key intersections. Households also did their part, leaving lights on to let kids know which houses to visit.
