ABAC hosted a "Pre-Halloween" event on campus known as Trunk or Treat, designed to attract all ages from little children to older grown ups from the Tifton area.
On Wednesday, Oct. 30, people dressed up and gathered at ABAC's parking lot over by Conger Hall to celebrate the spirit of Halloween out of the student and faculty trunks. Some participants were students, others were volunteer and some were from the fraternities and sororities at ABAC.
Some were mainly clubs, like the Equestrian Club, who did the haunted horse cart. They all didn't just give out candy some had their own games or "challenges" for the trick or treaters. There were two old horse carts that were turned into haunted carts. One of these was said to be filled with the undead souls of ABAC.
A family passed by but stopped to give their opinion on the event, "It was really fun. We've gotten tons of candy," said a little vampire princess.
"I think it's way better than downtown because it's not so crowded," said a zombie, who was losing a part of his face. The kids trailed on into the night with their barrels of candy.
The costumes varied from little ladybugs to fierce ninjas, to ghouls of the night to even the heroic Iron Man. Even the students dressed up to terrify the little ones. Teachers and officers took part as well.
One of the the next events held on the week of Halloween was the Halloween block party, which was held at Town Center and at the volleyball courts. Students from all around campus were invited to come spend a few hours hanging out with other students on campus.
There were all sorts of fun things at the block party -- everything from free food and refreshments to a DJ who was there throughout the night.
The Halloween block party also held a costume competition with a reward of a 20-dollar gift certificate to Wal-Mart. The winner of the competition was Robert Kurhajian who is forestry major and he was dressed as a police officer.
Another exciting event was the nightmare on Moore Street and the Haunted Hallways at ABAC Place. Students were able to take a long walk down the Haunted Hallways of Place and run in to all sorts of terrifying sites including vampires, zombies, and ghosts all brought together on the second floor of the 100 building.
After the spooky experience on the hallway, students were led on a creepy walk around the campus which ended at the Nightmare on Moore Street Halloween party where there was music playing and pizza to be eaten. All the vampires, werewolves, and sexy nurses came to show off their moves as the DJs played till 11 o’clock on the night of Halloween.
