About 100 people gathered in the middle of Towson's Knollwood neighborhood to celebrate Halloween.  This year's theme?  An alien invasion.

From princesses to super heroes, kids and their parents from the neighborhood and beyond came to enjoy the spectacle.

There were games, costumes and of course candy for the trick or treaters.

Spanning a block, the huge display is something many in the neighborhood get behind an help develop.

For them, it's a way to keep the innocence and nostalgia of Halloween alive.

Organizer, David Riley, told ABC2, "With everything taking people's time: work, family and school, it's good when you can find something that the whole community can acquiesce around and Halloween is a fun thing that's multi-generational and it allows you to be creative."

One parent said, the event took her back to a simpler time in life.
