HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University’s Multicultural/International Student Affairs Office (MISA), Black Student Union and the Student Government Association will host the fifth annual fall carnival Saturday, Oct. 31, from 6-9 p.m. in the Student Union Mall.
MISA Coordinator Makeitta Darbonne said community families are invited to join the festivities, which will include costumes, games and prizes. Free to the public, the carnival provides a fun and safe alternative to traditional trick-or-treating.
The carnival follows the Lion’s football game at 2 p.m. against Central Arkansas in Strawberry Stadium. Darbonne encouraged families to plan for a day of fun by enjoying the game first, then going to the carnival.
“The fall carnival gives kids more variety than just going door-to-door,” Darbonne said. “Here they can play a variety of fun carnival-style games and win prizes. There will also space walks, face painting, balloons, pumpkins, pizza and much more.”
Parents are asked to accompany their children throughout the event.
