COLUMBIA, KY - Area children will have an opportunity to be delighted, entertained and scared a little at this year's Lindsey Wilson College "Safe Halloween." The annual trick-or-treat affair trip the college's residence halls will be held 6pm-8pmCT on Tuesday, October 29, 2013, in the Cralle Student Union Building, 420 Helen Flatt Drive, Columbia, KY. The event, which is sponsored by the LWC Office of Residence Life, is free and open to the public.
Last year's "Safe Halloween" drew a record number of participants as more than 700 area children collected candy from LWC students.
LWC residence life officials hope that record will be broken this fall, the 20th annual year LWC has offered the event to the region's children.
"We really saw our program catapult last year, and we're really excited about that -- and we're hoping to see that same kind of improvement this year," said LWC Director of Residence Life Jordan Willis.
LWC students will escort children and their family members through residence halls. The four residence halls featured in this year's "Safe Halloween" will include Horton Hall, Jerry and Kendrick McCandless Hall, Parrott Hall and Phillips Hall. The residence halls will be decorated in themes that include a tribute to Disney and Pixar films and a haunted hall.
"We try to be very creative in how we decorate the hallways, and I think it's always interesting to just see how much we can spark a child's imagination through our decorations," said McCandless Hall Resident Director Khyati Patel.
Children will receive store-bought, packaged candy from student residents. The tour will take less than an hour.
"Bring a big bag, because we're going to try to fill you up with candy," Willis said.
Willis said younger children -- and squeamish adults -- can avoid touring the scarier residence halls.
"A lot of the older kids really enjoy the scarier hall, so we try to give them at least one scarier hall," he said.
In addition to trick-or-treating through the residence halls, games and activities will be offered in the Cralle SUB and on the Campus Quadrangle, including pictures with Blue Raider Bob.
Willis, who has been involved with "Safe Halloween" for a decade as a student and as an LWC staff members, said the annual fall event is a great example of LWC's commitment to the region. Duane Bonifer, Public Relations Director, Lindsey Wilson College "I just really enjoy getting to see the mixture of our student body with the community and getting to see all the community members on campus," he said. "It's not every day that we have 700 members on campus. ... It's just an awesome experience." Area residents and businesses can support "Safe Halloween" by donating store-bought candy or money to purchase store-bought candy to the LWC Office of Residence Life, Patel said. "It does take a lot of work and a lot of money to fund this, but it's always worth it," she said. Lindsey Wilson College's 20th-annual "Safe Halloween" will be from 6pm-8pmCT on Tuesday, October 29, 2013. The tour begins in the Cralle Student Union Building, 420 Helen Flatt Drive, Columbia, KY.
