Annual Community Trick Or Treat Planned For October 29; Free To The Public

Posted October 8, 2018 at 12:05 pm

Fall is here and Halloween is almost upon us. Penn Highlands Community College knows how to celebrate the season with its annual family-friendly Community Trick or Treat, which will be held on Monday, October 29, from 5:30pm to 7pm, at the College’s Richland Campus.

This event, intended for families with children who are 12 years old and under, is an experience that is not easily forgotten. Faculty, staff, and current students will be on-hand to give out free treats and candy.

Our Community Trick or Treat will have special areas dedicated to creating Halloween crafts and for our “Haunted Hospital”. The “Haunted Hospital” is intended for those looking for a scare, and it will have different levels of scariness so children of all ages can get in on the fun.

Also, for the first time, the Starkiller Garrison will be joining us! The Starkiller Garrison is a part of the 501st Legion, the largest Star Wars costuming club in the world. Get your cameras ready and hang out with some of your favorite characters from the Star Wars universe.

Last year, we had over 700 happy visitors. This year, we are prepared for that number to continue to grow as we create not only a community tradition, but also a family tradition.
