Deanna and Tony Alfano go all in every Halloween to make sure their son shines. It's something they worry about other days, with cerebral palsy confining Anthony to a wheelchair.

"I wish he could be running around with the kids, but this is his time to just be the guy," Tony Alfano said.

Anthony's a superstar with an incredible lineup of costumes seen by tens of millions of people as we've followed along each year.

"This is a perfect day, perfect thing for him, it makes me feel like I'm doing something right," his dad said.
