East Tennesseans enjoyed Halloween fun on historic grounds Friday night.

Cherokee Caverns held its first night of "Trick or Treating in the Cave" in Karns.

Kids dressed up in a variety of costumes to get some early Halloween candy.

They also enjoyed some spooky sights in the caverns which featured elaborate decorations.

The caverns have been a long-time tourist attraction. Some of the volunteers who run it thought Halloween would be the perfect time for some family fun.

"We did the Haunted Cave for a number of years," said Jib Whidby, the Volunteer Director at Cherokee Caverns. "Last year we changed this to trick or treat in the cave because we decided there are not a lot of events at Halloween for kids and families."

Trick or Treating in the Cave continues Saturday and Sunday night. It starts again Friday, October 25 and runs through Halloween.

Tickets are $8 per person. It begins at 5:30 each night and runs until 8:30.
