Thomas Stephenson, 5, son of Laura Stephenson, Fort McPherson Child and Youth Services pre-kindergarten teacher, peers into the "Candy for Adults" basket while trick-or-treating, ready to see what type of candy might be inside. Rather than treats, the basket had a scare in the form of Chap. (Col.) Michael Tarvin's masked head. Tarvin is a U.S. Army Forces Command chaplain. Thomas and other children throughout Fort McPherson enjoyed a night full of thrills and candy during trick-or-treating festivities Saturday.

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.
Even the "King of Pop," Michael Jackson, made a visit, moonwalking between houses to the delight of many.
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.
