“Fright Night,” Park University’s annual Halloween celebration for the community, will be held on Thursday, Oct. 27, at the Copley Quad residence hall on the Parkville Campus, from 6 to 8:30 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 Copley Quad and booths will be set up for carnival-style games, crafts and face painting. More than 25 Park student organizations and departments will sponsor booths with activities, contests and events for public.

“It is a great opportunity for the University and the Parkville community to come together and celebrate a night of Halloween fun for all ages” said Kalli Cheffey, Chesnut Hall resident director and conference event specialist.

Parking for the event will be available in Lot N adjacent to Julian Field at the University’s Sixth Street (west) entrance. For more information, contact Karie Schaefer, director of residence life, at or (816) 584-7401.
