Children, ghost, and candy! Oh my!


Earlier this week children from the local community came to WCU for Village Trick or Treating, a fun safe way for children to get candy and enjoy some festive activities.

WCU Police Department shut down traffic going to lower campus that evening so that it would be a safer, car free area for children and their families to embark on the fun.

Children were able to go door to door in the village to receive candy.

“I love handing out candy to kids coming by. It is such a great time for the students too”, said Mary Catherine Tate, WCU student.

Families were also able to go to the Village Commons and enjoy games like bob for pumpkins, cake walk, and bowling for candy.

“It’s neat to see kids having fun and parents not worrying about them or if they are okay” , said Heath Leagon WCU student.

Delta Zeta Sorority and Sigma Alpha Epsilon put on their first haunted house in the village as well inside their houses.

“I was surprised by how many parents and young kids went into the haunted house together but I guess it was family bonding”, said Chelsea Williams WCU student and member of Delta Zeta.

For many families Hall-O-Ween in the village has become a tradition because it has been such a great experience.
