In this 1960s home movie, Mary Louise Martinez and her family prepare for a trick-or-treat outing. Seven of Martinez’ grandchildren are shown posing in their costumes for the camera before heading out to collect candy. While the younger kids are preparing for the night, the adults set up spooky Halloween decorations like witch cutouts throughout the house. Later, when the children and parents return with large stashes of treats, the family plays music in the living room and unwind while the youngest member dances around.
