Blanding Halloween Carnival
Utah State University Blanding’s 23rd Annual Halloween Carnival brought fun and smiles to the community again this year. Several campus groups worked together to provide an exciting and safe Halloween event for the community, with hundreds from the community attending.
Six campus clubs lead the effort for the successful event, Nursing, LDSSA, Study Abroad, Cultural Ambassador Performance Program (CAPP), Journalism, and Intramurals, with each club hosting different activities for the evening. Activities included:
- Nursing: Pop Walk, Candy Corn Ring Toss, Ghost Bowling
- LDSSA: Zombie Nerf Gun Shooting
- Study Abroad: Escape Room
- Journalism: Fish Pond & Bean Bag Toss
- CAPP: Haunted Trail
- Intramurals: Costume Contest & Hay bale rides (included hot coco & glow in the dark bracelets)
Other events at the carnival included a big-screen movie night, featuring Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin, food, a photo booth, face paining, and a trunk -or- treat.
This year the Utah State University Student Association (USUSA) council in Blanding reached out to the community to invite local businesses and Healthcare Organizations (such as UNHS, Blue Mountain Hospital, San Juan County Health Department, San Juan Health Services, and more) for additional services such as food vendors and a Trunk or Treat. Student Council and campus clubs were very excited to see the outcome and support from the campus and community. Their goal to grow the event in 2018 proved successful due to their hard work and the willingness of all the volunteers who participated.
Special thanks to all the volunteers, community vendors and trunk or treat participants! Great work USUSA Student Council and USU Blanding Campus Clubs!
