On Halloween night, children in their costumes could be seen roaming the residence halls at UW-Eau Claire in search of candy and goodies. There were ghosts, goblins and even Mary Poppins.
As children and their parents wandered about, UW-Eau Claire students volunteered their time early Halloween evening to hand out candy, some even dressing up in costume for this community event.
Trick-or-treating began at 5 p.m. in Chancellors, Oak Ridge, Governors, Murray and The Suites residence halls. All other participating dorms offered candy in their respective lobbies from 3 to 5 p.m.
Halloween is not only known for candy, but for decorating as well. Students living in the dorms could also participate in a door decoration contest, with winners receiving prizes.
