Students can show off their best costumes and enjoy a night of frights at the General’s Spook-tacular from 7-10 p.m on Oct. 31 in the auditorium lobby and courtyard at Texas A&M University-San Antonio.
The Campus Activities Board is hosting the free event in hopes of connecting with students during the spooky fall holiday. This will be the first time they are hosting this event with the hope to host this annually.
“It is just to celebrate Halloween as a fun college experience,” said Hayde Gonzalez Cejas, an event coordinator for CAB. “Since our campus is small, this event is a chance to boost morale.”
General’s Spook-tacular will show the movie “The Conjuring” in the auditorium and will host a costume contest. The winner, decided by audience cheer, will receive a special candy-filled goodie bag. There will also be a photo booth available.
Free food will include “Blood Bags” for drinks, Halloween-themed snacks and trick-or-treat goodie bags for the first 30 to 50 attendees.
Additionally, there will be concessions such as popcorn and candy. Students can bring their own snacks for the movie.
It is better to RSVP to ensure free goodies, Cejas said. “It is just to celebrate Halloween as a fun college experience.”
“Since some students don’t live that close to the school or far from home, this is just something for them to enjoy … and why not attend? There’s a free movie, free food and everything is free,” Cejas said. “It’s spooky season. We should all get into the spirit and celebrate.”
