Pumpkins, pirates and zombies frolicked around the Kent State ice rink to collect candy for an early Halloween treat Thursday night.
“When we came in, they took us on a tour around (the ice rink), and we went to each of the cars and got candy out of the trucks,” said Kent resident Amber Edinger.
Edinger said she and her five children also went through a haunted house at the ice arena that was “really cool.”
Kids 12 and under from the Kent community were invited to the annual Haunted wRECk, which involved a “Greek, Ghouls and Goblins” Pit Stop.
Kelsey Fisher, vice president of programming for the Kent State Pan-Hellenic Council said the Student Recreation and Wellness Center has been doing the event for years, and this year the Greeks decided to collaborate with the Rec. She said fraternities and sororities had 17 cars, which were part the “trunk or treat” course, where kids collected candy out of decorated car trunks.
Hannah Edelman, senior nursing major in Chi Omega, said it’s for the kids in the area who don’t live in the right places to go trick or treating.
Edinger said her kids got slips about the event from their school, Holden Elementary in Kent. She said the slip explained the candy-collecting tour and mentioned that kids were also invited to ice skate after. She said her kids were excited to come.
Kent mother Sheri Sherbert brought her two daughters to the event and said she planned on leaving them there to enjoy the event for about an hour.
“It’s a safe place for the kids to come,” Sherbert said. “We know it’s supervised, and it’s a safe environment.”
