Some young patients at Driscoll Children's Hospital got a much needed break Tuesday from all the serious stuff and celebrated Halloween a little early.

The Child Life Department, with the help of Spirit Halloween, threw a Halloween party for the kids at the hospital. The kids received costumes, played games, got their faces painted and just had an afternoon of fun.

Spirit Halloween also raises money for the Child Life Department during the Halloween season. They said 100-percent of the donations they receive go to the hospital.
