Chris Leary, a phantom construction worker, gives out candy to a crowd of trick-or-treaters.

Alexandria Chris Leary could hardly keep up with the demand. For every trick or treating
basket that was filled with candy, two more would take its place a second later. The street outside his home was filled with a chorus of “trick or treat” followed a few seconds later my scattered “thank you,” often with nudging from parents.
“I feel like a rockstar,” Leary called out to the crowd as cameras flashed around him.
Leary’s home was just one of dozens of stops along S Lee Street for an army of children and adults wandering door to door on Oct. 31 in search of candy.
