“Fright Night,” Park University’s annual Halloween celebration, will be held Thursday, Oct. 26, at the Copley Quad residence hall on the University’s Parkville Campus, from 6 to 8 p.m. Admission to 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 the residence hall and booths will be set up for face painting, crafts and carnival-style games. More than 25 Park student organizations, departments and offices will sponsor booths with activities, contests and events for everyone in attendance.

“It is a great opportunity for the University and the Parkville community to come together and celebrate a night of Halloween fun for all ages” said Kalli Cheffey, Chesnut Hall resident director and conference event specialist.

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 Karie Schaefer, director of residence life, at or (816) 584-7401.
