Itís that spooky time of year and Halloween again will be celebrated in a safe and secure environment at University of Wisconsin-Stout.

UW-Stoutís north campus residence halls will host their annual trick-or-treat night for community children from 5:30-6:30 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 26. Children are encouraged to don costumes and visit Jeter-Tainter-Callahan, Fleming, Hovlid, Wigen and Red Cedar Halls for treats and fun.

The five residence halls 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. The halls will feature games and activities, such as ghost fishing and pumpkin bowling.

Student residents will offer a snack station, provide a cutout board for photos and hand out traditional candy treats and trinkets.

During the festivities, the residence halls also will hold a food drive to benefit the food pantry Stepping Stones of Dunn County. Participants are encouraged to bring a canned food item to donate.
