HAMMOND – Area children are invited to participate in Southeastern Louisiana University's ninth annual Fall Carnival Thursday, Oct. 31, from 5-7 p.m.
The university's Office of Multicultural and International Student Affairs, the Black Student Union, and Recreational Sports and Wellness are sponsoring the event in conjunction with Trick or Treat with the Greeks, which is coordinated by the Office of Student Engagement.
Both events are scheduled at Southeastern's North Oak Park, located at 2699 North Oak Street.
"This is our annual service effort," said Eric Summers, assistant to the Vice President for Student Affairs. "Our goal is to provide all of the typical traditions of Halloween in a safe, carnival atmosphere."
Summers said both events provide safe alternatives to traditional neighborhood door-to-door trick-or-treating and are free for the general public. Although children of all ages are invited to the festivities, the event targets children in kindergarten through fourth grade and will include games with prizes, candy, spacewalks, face painting, and much more.
Parents and guardians are asked to accompany their children throughout the evening. For more information, call 985-549-3850 or email email@example.com.
