A Halloween party on Saturday brought the spooky spirit to children with special needs.

The party was coordinate by "Fantastic Friends," an organization that aims to provide a personalized experience for children with unique needs. D'Youville College students also helped with the event.

"Many of the kids with special needs or autism hey have a lot of trouble making friends so that's where Fantastic Friends of Western New York started," said Debbie Cordone, the mother of a child with special needs.

The children came to the party in their costumes to dance and decorate pumpkins and cookies.
