Halloween is an entertaining and highly-anticipated holiday for all ages. When we outgrow trick-or-treating, other spooky festivities tend to take its place. This was my first October at UMW since we returned to in-person gatherings. I was hoping there would be Halloween-themed events around campus that would help inspire some school spirit, and I wasn’t disappointed.
On the evening of Oct. 28, Class Council hosted the traditional Halloweens event on Ball Circle. Students engaged in various activities, such as roulette wheel, cornhole, ball-throwing and hula hoop games. Decorations, lights and Halloween-themed music set the atmosphere, and popcorn and cotton candy were provided for students to enjoy. Many people, both hosts and guests, dressed up for the occasion. I attended this event and captured a few of the many impressive costumes at Halloweens 2021.
