Park University to Host Annual “Fright Night”

Wednesday, October 9, 2013


Oct. 9, 2013 — “Fright Night,” Park University’s annual Halloween celebration, will be held on Friday, Oct. 25, at the Copley Quad residence hall on the Parkville Campus, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public, and children of all ages are encouraged to dress in their favorite Halloween costume.

Fright Night will include trick-or-treating for children throughout Copley Quad and booths will be set up for face painting, crafts and carnival-style games. Featured events this year include pumpkin bowling, bobbing for donuts, spider toss and treasure hunts. More than 25 Park student organizations and departments will sponsor a booth.

“This event continues to provide a wonderful way for our student leaders to give back to the Parkville community while having fun and celebrating the holiday,” said Ben Zibers, coordinator for student engagement.

Parking for the event will be available in the lot adjacent to the University’s Sixth Street entrance next to Julian Field. For more information, contact Zibers at bzibers@park.edu or (816) 584-6375.
