Bloomington campus hosts 350+ trick-or-treaters on Family Fright Night


Ivy Tech Community College Bloomington hosted Family Fright Night for students and families on Wednesday evening, Oct. 31. More than 350 guests attended. Trick-or-treaters snacked on candy and pizza and enjoyed activities including a bounce house, glow-in-the-dark mini golf, football toss, cornhole, skee-ball, pop-a-shot basketball, a photo booth and more. Guests created their own ghost lollipops and enjoyed other arts and crafts including a “make your own slime” station, a coloring table, and more.

During the day, staff organized a potluck lunch and costume contest. The top costume prize went to the group dressed as characters from the “Clue” board game.

Family Fright Night is a Bloomington campus tradition held each year to provide a fun night for students and their families, organized by the department of student success.
