In a Charlottesville Halloween tradition, the UVa students lucky enough to get a room on the historic lawn opened their doors to trick-or-treaters.

Hundreds of costumed kids took over the lawn.

It was the annual trick-or-treating on the lawn event. University of Virginia students who live in the rooms at the lawn, as well those from other student organizations, passed out candy. But some of the kids say it's about more than the treats.

"I think just going around and meeting the people that give us the candy. Not the candy, but the people that give us the candy," Ella McLaren, a trick-or-treater dressed as a volcano, said of her favorite part of the day.

Trick-or-treating on the lawn is a tradition that started in the 1980's. There was also a trickor-treat festival at the McIntire amphitheater on grounds.
