Have a haunting Halloween at Spooktacular Oct. 30

Continue your childhood tick-or-treating tradition with a haunting Halloween found on campus. Mizzou After Dark and the Missouri Student Association host a night called Spooktacular and these committees are known for throwing the best events. At Spooktacular you can dress in your favorite costume to celebrate the spookiest night of the year.

Held October 30, 2013, from 7-11 p.m. at the MU Student Center, this free event is for MU students and the community. MU students must bring their student ID and the general public admission is $5. Leave your broomsticks and black cats at home as this is a family fun event.

Spooktacular is equipped with a spine-chilling haunted house, the enchanting great pumpkin carving contest, insane costume contest and plenty of Halloween themed treats. This is the perfect chance to try out that Halloween costume you’ve pinned on Pinterest. Whether you choose to be a frightening zombie, spooky witch, gruesome Grim Reaper or go in a zany group costume, you are in for a treat.

This hair-raising event is anticipated to be a grand time. You may find yourself being scared to death while exploring a haunted house. Or, you can satisfy your sweet tooth with creepy treats while carving pumpkins in the true spirit of Halloween.

You may have been told you are too old for trick-or-treating like you did in the good ol’ days. But, that’s why there’s Spooktacular, where you can embrace your inner child. Spooktacular reminds students of their love for All Hallows Eve and is anticipated to be a memorable night.
