The hospital can be a scary place for kids at any time of year – but things got spooky in a good way Wednesday at the Stollery Children's Hospital in Edmonton.

It was an extra special event for young patients who will most likely spend Halloween in the hospital.

Kids got to pick out free Halloween costumes, courtesy of Spirit Halloween, and get into the spirit of the season.

They'll be able to use these costumes to trick or treat through the halls of the Stollery.
