at Manchester College
Free candy. Check. People in scary costumes. Check. Haunted halls. Check. Safe and free. Check!
Manchester College is the perfect family destination for Halloween 2008. All five residence
halls will greet trick-or-treaters from 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 29. It's a North Manchester tradition: Hundreds of College students open their doors with treats for North Manchester children for the free All-Hall Trick-or-Treat, sponsored by the Residence Hall Association.
Brave kids seeking a truly frightening experience need look no farther than the ghouls and goblins of the hauntingly themed floors of Garver Hall, on the east edge of campus.
Helman Hall ghosts and creatures begin their tricks with a 6 p.m. pumpkin-painting party
in the Great Room, followed by an extra hour of room-to-room trick-or-treating, from 7 to 9 p.m.
East Hall next door will offer a gentler Halloween for younger goblins from 6 to 8 p.m. Students in Schwalm,
Garver and Oakwood halls also will hand out treats from 6 to 8 p.m.
The Haunted Forest is
not open this Halloween.
