FORT JACKSON, S.C. -- Children of all ages filled the Solomon Center Friday night for Fort Jackson's annual Fall Festival.

The only requirement for attendees at the Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation-sponsored event was that they have fun.

The Solomon Center was divided into sections with booths hosting age-appropriate games, and children were "awarded" candy for participating in games.

Games included perennial favorites like football and basketball toss as well as seasonal staples like creating fall decorations.

Although not billed as a Halloween event, many of the children and adults showed up in their favorite costumes. A glance in the crowd revealed people dressed as super heroes, princesses, scary ghosts, dinosaurs and movie characters.

Shuttle buses were available to transport those who wanted a spooky experience to the haunted house at the Youth Services Center.
