GREEN BAY – After a successful inaugural year in 2017, the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay’s Office of Residence Life is hosting, once again, the Trick-or-Treat Tot Trot —a family-fun, safe, Halloween event, on Monday, Oct. 29, 2018 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
The event will be held rain or shine and is focused on pre-kindergarten through elementary school-age children from the Green Bay area. Participants and their adult chaperones/parents are asked to check-in at the Mauthe Center, 2418 Leon Bond Drive, on the Green Bay Campus. Parking is available at the Kress Events Center or in the Visitors Lot near the University Union.
Children participating in the event will receive a reusable trick-or-treat bag, have the opportunity to take photos with costumed characters and have a variety of treats to indulge in. Participants and their accompanying adult(s) will be led by a UW-Green Bay Ghost Guide to Roy Downham Hall, where they will trick-or-treat from room to room. Upon completion of the tour, Ghost Guides will return the groups to the Mauthe Center. An adult chaperone is required to accompany their children. Guides will leave intermittently. Families do not have to arrive at the Mauthe Center at 4:30 p.m., but the final tour will depart at 6:15 p.m.
“UW-Green Bay students and housing staff are thrilled to able to welcome the Green Bay community for this age-appropriate event,” says Gail Sims-Aubert, director of Residence Life. “We are pleased to bring this program back for a second year after last year’s event where several hundred children toured our campus and enjoyed things like cookie decorating and receiving balloon animals in addition to getting loads of treats.”
Questions can be directed to Gail Sims-Aubert at 920-465-2040.
