Bloomington, Ind. – Indiana University’s Greek Community will be hosting a fun and spooky Halloween celebration on Wednesday, October 26th from 5-7 p.m. IU’s Panhellenic Association and Interfraternity Council– in collaboration with IU’s Multicultural Greek Council and the National Pan-Hellenic Council – is hosting the annual IU Safe Halloween event on the North Jordan extension. Safe Halloween provides Bloomington community children a chance to interact and engage with Indiana University undergraduate students in a safe and positive environment. Visitors are invited to park in the Green Lot at gate 12, north of the Gladstein Fieldhouse, and begin their trick-or-treating at Alpha Delta Pi and Alpha Xi Delta, working their way up David Baker Avenue.
“Our community as a whole has been working hard to make this a fun and successful event. We are very excited to be hosting and participating in a guaranteed night of fun for Bloomington families” said Cameron Eads, Vice President of Community Involvement for IU’s Panhellenic Association. “Safe Halloween is an opportunity for members of the Greek Community at Indiana University to connect and say thank you to families of the greater Bloomington area,” said Sean Rein, Vice President of Community Programs for IU’s Inter-Fraternity Council.
Members of IU’s Greek Community will be festively dressed and handing out candy to local youth. This year will include an allergy-free table and pizza provided by Bucceto’s. We will have a costume contest for the kids in which they will have the chance to win a $25 gift card. Bloomington radio stations and sponsors WBWB B97 and WHCC Hoosier Country 105 as well as other Bloomington organizations will also be present and ready to trick-or-treat. The IU Police Department will be present to restrict traffic on both ends of David Baker Avenue. IUPD officers will be available to assist in crossing the street at Fee Lane and David Baker Avenue.
