Annual Community Trick Or Treat Planned; Free To Public

Posted October 11, 2019 at 9:00 am

Fall is here and Halloween is almost upon us. Penn Highlands Community College is celebrating the season with its annual, family-friendly Community Trick or Treat event, generously sponsored by Wessel & Company. It will be held on Monday, October 28th, from 5:30pm to 7pm, at the college’s Richland Campus (101 Community College Way, Johnstown).

Intended for families with children who are 12 years old and under, this event is an experience that is not easily forgotten. Faculty, staff, and students will be on-hand to give out free treats (while supplies last) and provide a unique Halloween experience to visitors.

As well as trick or treat, we will have special areas dedicated to creating Halloween crafts, intently watching a special Halloween puppet show, and experiencing our one-of-a-kind “Twisted Fairytales Haunted Hallway.” All activities considered, there is something for children of all ages to get in on the fun.

Last year, we had over 1,200 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.

We kindly ask that visitors park and enter through the East Hills Recreation entrance. Lastly, we are asking for you to leave your pets at home as pets are not permitted on our campus (service animals are allowed).
