Halloween Happenings

A Halloween Carnival to be hosted by Sam Houston State University President and Mrs. James F. Gaertner, scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 30 at the Gibbs Ranch, has been cancelled.

"Because of the recent heavy rains, the area at Gibbs Ranch where parking and booths would have been set up is still under standing water," said Mrs. Gaertner. "We will be looking forward to next year's carnival."

There are a number of Halloween events on campus or in the Huntsville community, however.

The Residence Hall Association at Sam Houston State University is sponsoring its annual Trick or Treat Program Tuesday, Oct. 29, at 5:30 p.m. Parents should bring their children (up to 10 years of age) to the parking lot at 20th St. and Ave. J between 5:15 and 5:30 p.m. Parents are asked to remain with their children as group leaders and guide them around campus for some fun and safe Halloween activities in the residence halls. For more information, contact Missy at 936.294.1818.
