This year USU Eastern is putting a new spin on an old Halloween tradition. For several years, Eastern has hosted Spook-tacular. A themed event that invites parents and children in the community to come to campus and play games and have a spooky good time. This year student government is changing a few things to make the event even more enjoyable for families. On October 30, USU Eastern will be introducing the School of Ghouls. This new event will be the kick off for food bank fundraiser bread and soup night, as well as a Halloween party for the whole family. Admission will be five dollars at the door and four dollars if purchased in advance. Naturally, a portion of the money raised will be donated to the food bank. The cost of a ticket will purchase a bowl of soup, in the traditional bread and soup night style, and lots of fun games, crafts, and goodies for the kids. Some of the booths that one can expect to see are the bean bag toss, duck pond, spider crafts, basketball dunking, caramel apples, face painting, and more. The booths will be run by clubs on the campus, as well as sports teams and other organizations. Anyone looking for a fun family activity, a good meal, a good cause, or a chance to show off their costume will enjoy this event.
