Daytona Beach, Fla., October 18, 2007
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University will provide a safe evening of trick-or-treating during the Housing Department’s 18th annual Halloween Spooktacular Event, to be held Wednesday, Oct. 31.
The following activities will all take place from 6-8 p.m.:
* Hungry little ghosts and goblins can fill their bags and baskets with candy in McKay Hall.
* A carnival specially designed for younger children will be held in the Student Village atrium. The carnival will feature face painting, palm reading, various creative and challenging games, a bounce house, and light refreshments.
* Older children are invited to test their courage in the haunted house in Doolittle Hall.
* In the lobby of Apollo Hall, a new residence hall that opened earlier this month, the children can enjoy craft projects and have their photo taken against a Halloween backdrop.
All activities are supervised by Embry-Riddle staff and are free and open to the public. Parents should accompany their children and provide them with a container to put their goodies in. Parking will be directed by campus safety officers at the Student Village, which is located on Richard Petty Boulevard near its intersection with Clyde Morris Boulevard.
