ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Kindergarten students at Deerfield-Windsor started their trick-or-treating early Monday morning at a unique location. 

They left their classrooms and walked down the street to spread cheer to a different generation at the Phoebe senior living facility. 

The kids wandered the halls sharing laughs and hugs and collecting candy.

This is the 16th year they have done the costume parade. 

Phoebe's administrative director Becky Hendricks said the kids love it just as much as the elderly folks. 

"They love to see the children. We have wonderful family members so visitors really aren't an issue but this energy that the children bring is just fantastic," said Hendricks.

The parade today was just the kickoff for a number of inter-generational events Phoebe assisted living will be doing this year.
