Owens students holding Halloween event for kids Oct. 30
Friendly ghosts, skeletons and witches will abound as Owens Community College hosts a variety of free games and activities as part of its fourth annual “Halloween Alternative” for children ages 12 and under on Friday, Oct. 30.
Sponsored by the college’s Student Government, the child-friendly haunted evening will be held from 6-8 p.m. in the Student Health and Activities Center. All activities are free and area residents are welcome to attend with their children.
“Owens Community College’s ‘Halloween Alternative’ is a wonderful opportunity for families to enjoy an evening full of fun and entertainment in a safe, warm, indoor setting,” said John Byers, Owens manager of Student Activities. “The Student Government is proud to provide an event for the Northwest Ohio community that captures the Halloween spirit and excitement.”
Children attending the event will be able to participate in a variety of arts and crafts during their visit – coloring festive Halloween pictures, creating their own ghosts and drawing on keepsake pumpkins. Attendees also will be given a trick-or-treat bag to decorate with their favorite colors and unique Halloween designs. Throughout their haunted adventure, children can trick-or-treat for candy from Owens students and travel through a haunted house.
Additionally, “Halloween Alternative” will include various refreshments and snacks for everyone.
The College’s Student Government is comprised of individuals who serve as the student body’s voice on the Toledo-area and Findlay-area campuses. Balancing their time between school and work, Student Government members are constantly initiating new projects and events that cater to the interests of Owens’ student body.
