Hartwick Hosts Annual Halloween Party for Community

Hartwick Hosts Annual Halloween Party for Community

October 14, 2013

Hartwick will host its annual community Halloween Harvest Fest on Sunday, October 27 from 3 p.m. - 5 p.m. in Golisano Hall on the College's campus. The event is free and the public is welcome to attend.

The party will include activities, games, refreshments, and a costume contest.  Following the party, families and friends are invited to go on a guided trick-or-treating tour throughout the residence halls while on campus. Along the trick-or-treating path, there will be games and much more for children and families of all ages to participate in.

"We are so excited to welcome the families of Oneonta to Hartwick College for our annual community Halloween event," said Aimee Boyd, Resident Director of Saxton Hall at Hartwick College. "Our student staff can't wait to see everyone's costumes and show off the hard work they have been putting into games and activities for the kids in our area. We love having the chance to give back to the community that has given so much to us."

Hartwick College welcomes their neighbors in the greater Oneonta area for these events, which are made possible by current Hartwick students who are coordinating all of the activities that will be offered.
