Unless it’s in costume, there’s no excuse for walking through this Halloween season like a zombie at UAF. In fact, you might want to plan for multiple costumes if are going to keep up with all that campus has to offer. See the calendar listings for complete details.
Got Pumpkin Carving? Oct. 27, 6-10 p.m., Gruening 206
Thanks to ABS, evil spirits don’t stand a chance on campus! Jack-o-lanterns traditionally were placed in windows for this purpose. So perhaps this year you may want to think twice before smashing them!
Got Mad Scientists? Oct. 29, 4-7 p.m., UA Museum
Who knows what kind of insane schemes may be brewing in the labs at the UA Museum of the North. Children up to age 12 are encouraged to find out. Bring a can of food to donate to the Food Bank and admission is free!
Got Scary Movies? Oct. 29, 10 p.m., Hess Rec Center
Ch-ch-ch-ha-ha-ha… Showing at the Hess Rec Center, the latest Friday the 13th remake of the classic horror flick and is a Halloween MUST! A group of young adults discover a boarded up Camp Crystal Lake, where they encounter Jason Voorhees and his deadly intentions.
Got Bonfires? Oct. 30, 4 p.m., Meet at the OA Office
Outdoor Adventures has got this cleansing Halloween ritual covered up on Ester Dome. If the short hike doesn’t scare you, the ghost stories around the campfire will! Registration for this annual event fills up fast.
Got Costume contests? Oct. 30, 9 p.m., The Pub
It will haunt you for the rest of the semester if you miss this party featuring DJ XX & Dagand. Cash prizes will be awarded for the best group and individual costumes!
Got Freaky beats? Oct. 30, 8 p.m., Wood Center Ballroom
Tobacco smuggles disoriented paranoia deep into the subconscious using analog synthesizers, tape machines, and “deformed incantations from throats unknown”. His music is a “wash of distortion and melody over jagged beats”.
Got Trick-or-treaters? Oct. 30, 4 p.m., Wood Center
It just wouldn’t be Halloween without kids in costume shouting trick-or-treat! Children up to age 12 and their parents can enjoy a warm, safe environment with plenty of candy, fun and games at the Wood Center Halloween Carnival.
