Little goblins, astronauts, princesses and cowboys roamed the halls of the Humanities Building Friday night to kick-start Halloween festivities.
Greek Life hosted a “Safe Halloween” event for children ages 12 and under to safely trick-or-treat from 6 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 23. One canned food item per child was collected as admission to the event to be donated to the York County Food Bank.
Each room had a theme and was decorated. The themes were based on animals and ranged from farm to jungle. One sorority and one fraternity was in each room to assist the kids with collecting candy, getting their faces painted, completing puzzles, playing games, etc.
The kids went from room to room with their parents, babysitters, siblings and friends.
“It was great to see all the kids in their Halloween costumes,” said Devon Morris of Tau Kappa Epsilon. “They all looked so happy to be there.”
Safe Halloween is a fun, free and safe way for the children of York’s community to trick-or-treat. “Seeing the smiles on the children’s faces when they entered our room felt rewarding,” said Marissa Migioia of Delta Phi Epsilon, “and it was good to know they were having fun in a safe environment.”
