Soldiers and families of the 1st Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division, celebrated Halloween in style during the Ironhorse Fall Festival and Trunk or Treat on Oct. 26.

Each battalion spruced up vehicles with Halloween-inspired decorations for the Trunk or Treat and provided volunteers who ran a variety of carnival games for all age groups.

With Halloween-themed music playing, kids in costumes searched far and wide for 1st Cavalry Division patches marking clues for the scavenger hunt.

The attraction garnering the most attention was the Ironhorse scare house.

“There’s been a line outside the door all day,” said Sgt. 1st Class Kristopher Willey, Ironhorse Fall Festival and Trunk or Treat assistant coordinator, assigned to Headquarters and Headquarters Troop.

“That has been the biggest hit,” Willey said.

Spc. Meschelle Munro, of the brigade’s 115th “Muleskinners” Brigade Support Battalion, said she enjoyed meeting families while handing out candy from a vehicle decorated like a pirate ship.

The parents and kids had a good time, Munro said.

“They were dressed up. We were dressed up, and I think as a unit ... (it’s) good for us to come together.”
