CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. — It’s never too late to celebrate Halloween and that’s what some very special little ones did in Chester as part of the first-ever “Dylan’s Do-Over” event.

The trick-or-treat event was for Dylan Lipton-Lesser, a boy with special needs little who missed Halloween because he was recovering from his 22nd brain surgery. Several other children, who also missed Halloween, participated as well with toys and treats.

The event was described as not just a second Halloween, but a way for the special kids to enjoy treats and be included.

Leftover toys from the event will go toward a toy drive for the holidays.

The festivities were held at OB Gates Elementary on Courthouse Road from 2 to 4 p.m.

Be sure to follow Dylan’s Facebook page to keep up on his progress. In fact, the little boy is scheduled for an MRI Monday to determine if he will require addition surgery.
