ECTC Welcomes Trick or Treaters to “Spooktacular” event, October 31

For a “Spooktacular” Halloween experience, trick or treaters are invited to visit Elizabethtown Community and Technical College from 3 – 6 p.m. on Halloween, October 31. Kids of all ages can explore the many buildings, offices and programs on campus, where they will find decorations and treats, like candy, cookies, ice cream, prizes and lots of fun activities and music.

Little ghouls and goblins, superheroes and princesses, can be fingerprinted in the Criminal Justice program, they can make creepy hot chocolate and spooky balloons at Skills U, help judge a pumpkin-carving contest, get photos with WKU’s Big Red from 3:45 – 4:15 p.m., compete for cupcakes in a “Cupcake Walk,” “Spin the Wheel” for prizes, and decorate mini-pumpkins while listening to a guitar concert.

Visit the Mad Scientist in a chemistry lab where he’ll conjure up some gooey slime, and stop by the library for crafts and special 3-D printed Halloween gadgets. Families and groups can test their teamwork and problem-solving skills in an Escape Room, and those who want to stick around can enjoy an indoor movie night with “Monsters U” at 6 p.m.

The ECTC Spooktacular is free and open to the public from 3 – 6 p.m. on October 31.  Visitors are encouraged to start at the Regional Postsecondary Center (RPC) but can begin anywhere on campus. Just follow the signs on campus for directions.
