2016 event

A UW-Stout student hands out candy to children at Red Cedar Hall during the 2016 trick-or-treat event on north campus.

It’s that spooky time of year with Halloween just around the corner. For the 20th year in a row, Halloween will be celebrated in a safe and secure environment at University of Wisconsin-Stout.

The north campus residence halls will host the annual trick-or-treat night for community children from 5:45 to 6:45 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 25. Children are encouraged to don costumes and visit Fleming, Hovlid, Wigen and Red Cedar halls for treats and fun.

Fleming, Hovlid and Wigen are on Broadway Street between First and Fourth avenues. Red Cedar Hall is on Second Street, between First and Third avenues.

UW-Stout students will be on hand in the main lobby of each building to greet and direct children and parents. Along with trick-or-treating throughout the residence halls, games and activities will be in each building.

“This is a wonderful event and has become a tradition with our north campus residence halls. More importantly this event is an opportunity for us to open our doors to the greater Menomonie community,” said Alfred Beseler, residence life coordinator.

“To provide a safe environment for community members to bring their children and have a wonderful time is our primary goal, all while providing an avenue for our students to become more integrated in the Menomonie community,” Beseler added.

University Housing staff members are sponsoring and coordinating the event, which typically draws about 500 children. About 1,000 students live in north campus residence halls.
