As twilight drew closer, a long line of fairy-tale characters, Superheroes and Halloween fans of all ages snaked down the sidewalk from the east entrance student union at Seward County Community College/Area Technical School. Once the doors opened, children and parents entered the college’s annual “Trick or Treat Street.” The event featured booths staffed by campus organizations, including students and staff. Some tables offered candy, others gave out prizes or challenged guests to play games. The second level of the student union featured a scary “haunted hallway” for the brave of heart.
Director of Student Life and Leadership Wade Lyon said the event was a huge success.
“Student Government Association counted 1,241 participants, and I’m not sure they got everyone counted,” he said. “That mark is up from 987 participants last year, and to my knowledge is an all-time high.”
