Witches, mutants, rangers and even Buzz and Woody made their way through the CORE Fall Carnival at the Virgil Henson Activities Center on October 29.

The carnival is put on each year by the CORE office and is aimed toward children 12 and under. Organizations are encouraged to set up booths to help.

“We like to see the kids in the community Halloween it up,” Amy LeBas, Chi Omega president, said.

Parents enjoy bringing their children to the carnival because it is a safe environment for children.

“It is definitely safer than taking the kids trick-or-treating,” Jenny Morgan, mother of two, said.

The kids participate in activities such as toilet paper toss, miniature golf, bean bag throw and face-painting. There is even a prize booth where tickets won can be exchanged for toys and candy.

“Come for the costumes, stay for the candy,” Grant Reyher, a parent, said.
