Fox Hill Neighbors Gather for Annual Halloween Party

For the past 11 years the Masons have held their annual Halloween party in the backyard of their Peachtree Corners home.

Mix some excited young trick-or-treaters with grown-ups who are kids at heart - and it's a sure bet it's going to be a frightfully good time.

For the past 11 years, Mike and Debbie Mason have hosted a pre-trick-or-treat party for their neighbors, and it's one that no one in the neighborhood wants to miss.

Debbie Mason serves her annual fare of chili and hot dog, something she started when her own sons were young to make sure they ate before heading out for the annual hunt for candy. "I just wanted to make sure my kids (who are now grown) had something to eat before trick or treating," Debbie Mason said.

The idea grew into its current version that this year brought some 65+ to enjoy gathering for a meal and conversation before heading out for Halloween night for the annual trip to gather candy.

"We have a lot of fun," said Mike Mason (who also happens to be Peachtree Corners mayor). The mayor got a good laugh when one of his young neighbors showed up as "Mayor Mike Mason" - complete with bushy gray eyebrows and mustache - and carrying a brief case. 

We caught the young mayor - a mini-me of sorts - who posed with the real mayor. Also captured were witches, goblins and creatures that had risen from the dead.

Sounds like another reason that Peachtree Corners is a perfect place to call home. I heard about that imposter Mayor at my closing. The Grandfather of the imposter, was laughing and talking about his Grandson, the Mayor. Fox Hill sure has some fun events.

Now that I have studied the photo of the imposter, I wonder which one is our real Mayor. He sure looks like our Mayor.

Nancy, I think it's the taller guy, but I may be wrong. By the way, I heard the young impostor won the best costume award too.

I checked the photos and I think the short guy is my grandson, DNA tests will verify. Kristina,s dad (aka grandpa doc)
