Friendly ghosts, skeletons and witches will abound as Owens Community College serves as host to a variety of free games and activities as part of its seventh annual “Halloween Alternative” for children ages 12 and under on Friday, Oct. 26.
Sponsored by the college’s Student Government, the child-friendly haunted evening will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Student Health and Activities Center on the Perrysburg Township campus, off of Oregon Road. All activities are free and area residents are welcome to attend.
“Owens Community College’s ‘Halloween Alternative’ is a wonderful opportunity for families to enjoy an evening full of fun and entertainment in a safe, warm, indoor setting,” said John Byers, Owens director of Student Involvement.
Children attending will be able to participate in a variety of arts and crafts during their visit, highlighted by coloring festive Halloween pictures, creating their own puppets and drawing on keepsake pumpkins. Attendees also will be given a trick-or-treat bag to decorate with their favorite colors and unique Halloween designs. Throughout their haunted adventure, children can trick-or-treat for candy from Owens students and travel through a haunted house.
