Trick-or-Treat Fest is a fun program that provides children with a safe zone for trick-or-treating during the Halloween season, as well as other fun activities including story telling, face painting, a Halloween themed movie and a haunted house. This event is hosted in collaboration with various Greek organizations on campus.
The 2017 Trick-or-Treat Fest will be held on October 30, 2017 from 3-6 p.m. at Georgia State University. Last year’s event was a huge success thanks in part to the many organizations and Georgia State University departments (Study Hall, Pittman Park Recreation, Operation Peace, Inman Middle School and Warren Boys and Girls Club) that assisted Civic Engagement with hosting such a heartening occasion.
Civic Engagement partnered with Greek Housing and University Housing to provide students with a safe zone for trick-or-treating, games and various fun activities. In total, 154 children attended last years’ Trick-or-Treat Fest. As a final surprise to an event filled day, Georgia State University’s mascot, Pounce, made an appearance. Pounce took photos as well as assisted with passing out candy to the trick-or-treaters.
The event was indeed a success, but it would not have been possible without the amazing children in attendance as well as collaborative efforts from Civic Engagement, Greek Housing, University Housing and engaged community partners.
