Ghosts and goblins in search of candy

HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Ghost and goblins came to life Halloween night as kids coast wide celebrated. From D'Iberville to Gulfport kids were out and about going door to door trick-r-treating.

"I stand in a tree right there and they usually don't see me when they walk up, but when they walk back they are like what is that," Mary Claire Rackley said.

At night some humans turned into vampires, hoping to get a scream out of those who come in search of candy.

"I just wave at them. If their little I don't scare them, but if they are older I'll chase them," said Rackley.

Spooky spiders covered some houses welcoming those dressed in their favorite costumes.

From a ninja, to Batman and even Chucky, there was a mixed bag of characters all in search of candy.

You could have seen the orange morph man knocking at your door or possibly an evil hand ringing your door bell. While some children went door to door trick-r-treating others decided Edgewater Mall in Biloxi was the perfect stomping ground.

Shakila Walker said, "I have three small kids and I wanted to bring them somewhere where they could have fun and be safe."

From dinosaurs to bumble bee's the mall turned into a haunted hallow. Store employees took time to pass out candy to all the ghost and goblins.

Trick-r-treaters said, "Happy Halloween!"
