“It is a tradition they have done for many years,” said Zaide Williamson, a residence life staff member. “And it is a good way to involve the community with the college and promote a welcoming environment for the kids and parents.” 

The event was full of carnival games, prizes and, of course, lots of candy. The games included Frisbee, knock-down cans, bean bag toss, tic-tac-toe, ring toss and many more. 

Crafts were also a part of the fun. Kids could make their own potions, slime and drawings while listening to Disney music and eating snacks.
