HAMMOND, LA (WAFB) - Southeastern Louisiana University will host its 11th annual Fall Carnival Saturday, October 31 from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m.
The carnival will be sponsored by the Office of Multicultural and International Student Affairs, the Black Student Union and Recreational Sports and Wellness.
During the carnival, there will also be Trick or Treat with the Greeks which will be coordinated by the Office of Student Engagement.
Both events will be held on the lawn of Southeastern's Pennington Student Activity Center at 1350 N. General Pershing and is free to the public.
Assistant to the Vice President of Student Affairs, Eric Sommers says the point of the events are to offer safer alternatives to the traditional door-to-door trick-or-treating.
"This is our annual service effort," says Sommers. "Our goal is to provide all of the typical traditions of Halloween in a safe, carnival atmosphere."
Although the event is open to children of all ages, the carnival targets children between kindergarten and fourth grade with games with prizes, candy, spacewalks, face painting and more.
Parents and guardians are asked to accompany their children to the events throughout the evening.
