Haylee Barber, 4, pulls up her bear mask to ponder for a moment before she picks a necklace from Opal Yarbough, 92, who gave out jewelry to children as her trick-or-treat item.

Yarbough was one of many residents at the rehab center who gave out candy, played games and spent time with visiting children from local daycare centers at the La Villa Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center's fall festival Thursday in Victoria.

Visitors and residents drank bubbling witches' brew, played a musical cakewalk, tossed the ball with Max the dog, chomped on popcorn and got lots of Halloween temporary tattoos.

Marise Dudley, director of rehab, said this is the first year of hosting the fall festival at La Villa, 3007 N. Navarro St.

"We wanted to do it for the community and the residents. It's nice for them to get to spend time with the kids," she said.
