It’s Manchester Boo! on Oct. 30
for area youngsters

Miniature ghosts and goblins will haunt campus on Wednesday, Oct. 30 for Manchester University’s annual community All-Hall Trick-or-Treat.

Area families are invited to bring their little monsters, princesses and other spooky and sweet characters to the North Manchester campus from 6 to 8 p.m. on the night before Halloween to roam the residence halls in search of treats and ghosts.

Most of the residence halls also have special activities in their lounges. Everything is free for this annual gift to the community from students, coordinated by MU’s Residence Hall Association. Alert: All children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

The best route for goodie collecting, giggles and boos is to begin at Schwalm Hall on the west side of campus, then to Helman and Oakwood halls, then to the east side at East Hall and, if you dare, to Garver Hall.

Haunted Garver Hall is so spooky that it may not be appropriate for children under 10. Brave youngsters may enter if with somebody over 16, but Garver definitely is not the place for wee ones.

Here’s what Manchester University students have scared up for the evening:

  • Bobbing for apples and other Halloween activities in Schwalm Hall (Wayne Street)
  • Pumpkin painting in Helman Hall (College Avenue)
  • Decorated doors in Oakwood Hall (College Avenue)
  • Halloween games in East Hall (East Avenue), where students are competing in a decorating contest
