Albany- A fall festival for families of deployed military hopes to put the happy back in Halloween.

The American Legion Post 30 Women's Auxiliary set up a haunted house and fall festival at the post along Gillionville Road. There were frights and train rides for more than 100 kids who have a parent serving overseas.

"Holidays are important to families. To be able to take the children out into a safe environment where you know that they're safe it means a lot," said Joyce Williamson, event organizer.

Many kids wore costumes and enjoyed the activities set up outside on the lawn.
