Each year, Late Night Marquette hosts a Halloween event, whether it brings a magician, hypnotist or entertainer of some kind. This year, Late Night Halloween begins 8 p.m. Saturday at Marquette Place.
This year there will be mask painting, mason jar crafts and slime making. Dressing in costume is highly encouraged as the best costume gets MarquetteCASH. Free food will be provided for everyone.
Kaytriauna Farr, a junior in the College of Arts & Sciences, is a Late Night program assistant who is helping set the event up. The Late Night Program assistants work together to provide various activities and make sure the event is fun for all students.
“I worked with my fellow program assistant to come up with activities and crafts to do for the night,” Farr said. “This year we are also partnering with Wellness Peer Educator to bring awareness to Domestic Violence Awareness Month and Late Night is excited to be having a partner for this year’s Halloween event.”
Farr said this year Late Night is putting extra emphasis on coming in costume as it adds to the festivities and keeps the spooky vibe of the week as well as bringing more excitement to the contest. Another important part of the night that Farr said she is looking forward to sharing with the Marquette students is the free food, as it is always a hit.
“Any Late Night event is put on to allow students to enjoy a weekend of fun-filled, social opportunities and is open to all on campus,” Farr said.
All Late Night Marquette events have their own charm, but this Halloween-themed event will be extra special. Farr and the Late Night assistants strive to put on the best events and they are especially excited for this year’s Halloween event, Farr said. She encouraged everyone to attend this Saturday’s extravaganza.
“Come see for yourself the fun you can have, bring a friend and tell a friend,” Farr said.
For Ksymena Kwasnik, a junior in the College of Arts & Sciences, the Late Night Halloween event is something she said she looks forward to. Last year she stopped by in costume and was able to try some food and admire everyone else’s costumes.
“I went to the Late Night event last year for a little and it was so fun. I really liked seeing the other students costumes because I was wearing one too. This year I plan on stopping by again and enjoying the event,” Kwasnik said.
This year will be the first time attending the event for Parker Troy, a freshman in the College of Arts & Sciences. Troy said he is very excited about spending his first Halloween weekend at college.
“I love Halloween and am excited to be here for it for the first time. That’s why when I saw there was a Late Night Halloween event I was happy. I look forward to the activities and seeing everyone in costume,” Troy said.
