Halloween came early Tuesday for pediatric patients at UC Davis Children’s Hospital in Sacramento.

The group Spirit of Children tries to make hospitals less scary for young patients and their families, bringing costumes, decorations and other Halloween goodies to ensure children in long-term hospital care can enjoy Halloween.

Spirit of Children raises funds year-round for child medical departments in hospitals across the U.S. and Canada.
