Parents, are you mapping out your kid’s route for trick-or-treating this Halloween? If you’re looking for a fun, family-friendly way to spend Halloween and an optimal candy stop for the kids, consider adding Greenville College to your list! Children are invited to visit Greenville College for a tour that leads through several residence halls and ends with a carnival on Scott Field. Residence halls will be open for the trick-or-treating tour Oct. 31 from 6 to 8 pm.
Each stop on campus will be fantastically decorated with a different theme as trick-or-treaters wind through the residence hall Halloween tour. This year’s themes include Scooby-Doo, Christmas in October, “The Wizard of Oz”, fantasy adventure, and the jungle. Students responsible for coordinating the tour will be decorating their floor, dressing as themed characters, and competing for the best decorations. After the tour, trick-or-treaters can enjoy face painting, cotton candy, and popcorn at the carnival.
Burritt Hall will serve as the starting point for the tour, which is located just off of Beaumont Avenue. This event is free, and parking is available at the campus parking lot on Prairie Street, as well as Lot A between Burritt Hall and the tennis courts. Parents are asked to accompany children. A map of campus is available here.
