"Fright Night,” Park University’s annual Halloween celebration, will be held on Thursday, Oct. 30, at the Copley Quad residence hall on the Parkville Campus, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public, and children of all ages are encouraged to dress in their favorite Halloween costume.

Fright Night will include trick-or-treating for children throughout the residence hall and booths will be set up for face painting, crafts and carnival-style games. Featured events this year include ring around the jack-o’-lantern, a tattoo station, face painting, ghost fishing, coloring pages and various giveaways. More than 25 Park student organizations and departments will sponsor these booths.

“I am excited about seeing the clubs and organizations getting involved with the Parkville community during the spookiest event of the year,” said Nora Gedei, student programs specialist.

Parking for the event will be available in the lot adjacent to the University’s Sixth Street entrance next to Julian Field. For more information, contact Gedei at or (816) 584-6472.
