Program Board hosted its annual Halloween Block Party, which featured free Halloween-themed activities.
The Thursday, Oct. 31 event featured a photo booth, DJ, pumpkin painting and a mobile escape room.
Hannah Hale, Program Board senior event planner and nursing junior, said the organization spent three weeks planning the event, but inclement weather forced the organization to change its plans.
“We put this on every year,” Hale said. “It’s usually called Halloween Bash, but this year I changed it to Halloween Block Party because it was originally supposed to be outside, but it snowed, so we moved it in.”
Hale said there were other changes to ac- company the new name for the event.
“Last year, they had a silent disco, so having a full-blown DJ is new,” she said.
Tourney Tuesday featured a cornhole tournament, and Valley Nights provided virtual reality equipment. PHE also sponsored the mobile escape room.
Sarah Hahn, an early childhood education junior, said she enjoyed the event.
“The food was pretty good, the music was good and FORTE’s dance was really cool,” Hahn said.
Students were encouraged to dress in costume, which theatre senior Brittany LaCrosse said she appreciated.
“I am a big fan of Halloween, and I think everyone should celebrate it,” LaCrosse said. “I like seeing other people’s costumes and seeing people embrace being a little weird.”
Hale encouraged students to be on the lookout for Program Board’s upcoming events, such as a hypnotist from TikTok.
