Treats, activities, food drive part of UW-Stout campus Halloween Oct. 27


Menomonie (Press Release) — Kids love Halloween, but the big day comes just once a year. Now, thanks to students at the University of Wisconsin-Stout, children will get a second chance to dress up, trick-or-treat and celebrate. 

UW-Stout's north campus residence halls will host a trick-or-treat night for community children from 5:30-7 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 27. Children are encouraged to don costumes and visit Jeter-Tainter-Callahan, Fleming, Hovlid, Wigen and Red Cedar Halls for treats and fun.

The halls are on or near Broadway Street between 1st and 4th avenues.

UW-Stout students will be on hand in the main lobby of each building to greet and direct children and parents. The halls will feature games and activities, such as ghost fishing and pumpkin bowling.

Student residents will offer a snack station, provide a cutout board for photos and hand out traditional candy treats and trinkets, such as pencils, crayons and temporary tattoos.

During the festivities, the halls also will hold a food drive to benefit Interfaith Food Pantry of Dunn County. Participants are encouraged to bring a canned food item to donate.

Parking is available in Lot 8, next to the Louis Smith Tainter House, 320 S. Broadway St., or on nearby city streets.

For more information, contact Shawn Wilson, residence hall official, at or 715-232-3284.
