Manchester invites area families to All-Hall Trick-or-Treat on Oct. 29

Helman Hall, 2013For a safe and family-friendly Halloween experience, try haunting the residence halls at Manchester University on Wednesday, Oct. 29.

The annual All-Hall Trick-or-Treat for the North Manchester community is 6 to 8 p.m., hosted by MU students who work side by side to make their hall a fun place for little super heroes, princesses and assorted ghouls to roam – even though one hall might be a little too scary for tiny tots.

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 might not be appropriate for children younger than 10. Brave youngsters may enter if with somebody older than 16, but Garver definitely is not the place for wee ones.

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

  • Schwalm Hall on Wayne Street is celebrating Halloween Around the World.
  • Helman Hall on College Avenue is doing Pumpkin Coloring.
  • Trick or treat in Oakwood Hall on College Avenue.
  • East Hall on East Street is having Wing Wars, with each wing in a friendly competition to see who best carries out their theme. The first floor is all about super heroes, the second floor features the Disney film Frozen and the third floor is immersed in sea creatures.

Trick-or-Treat hours in the town of North Manchester are 5:30-7:30 p.m. Oct. 31.
