Contact: Tonya Lowentritt
HAMMOND – Area children are invited to participate in Southeastern Louisiana University’s 6th annual Fall Carnival Sunday, Oct. 31, from 5-7 p.m.
The university’s Office of Multicultural and International Student Affairs and the Black Student Union are sponsoring the event in conjunction with Trick or Treat on Greek Street, which is sponsored by Greek Life and the Southeastern chapter of GAMMA, Greeks Advocating the Mature Management of Alcohol.
The event is scheduled at Southeastern’s Greek Village, located at 1500 North General Pershing on Southeastern’s north campus.
“This year we have two fun events in one great location,” said Director of Greek Life Cherie’ Kay Thriffiley. “Offering both events simultaneously allows kids to trick or treat at each Greek house and an opportunity to participate in carnival-style games for prizes.”
Thriffiley said both events provide safe alternatives to traditional neighborhood door-to-door trick-or-treating and are free for the general public. Children of all ages are invited to the festivities, which will include games with prizes, spacewalks, balloons, face painting, pizza, drinks and much more.
Parking will be available in the University Center lot south of the entrance to Greek Village. For more information, call 985-549-2120.
