Trick or Treat Street was held on Oct. 30 from 5-7:30 p.m. StuCo was in charge of putting the night together.
“Basically Trick-Or-Treat Street is this open template,” Secretary Hannah Brown said. “We asked different clubs and see who wants to be involved.”
This year, Ecology Club had a petting zoo for the first time since the 2010 Trick or Treat Street. There were animals such as a bearded dragon, sugar glades, an irish wolfhound, and hermit crabs.
“I think it’s cool to see all the little kids get excited about [the petting zoo],” Ecology Club sponsor Joe Brocksmith said. “The teenage kids also get happy about seeing them happy.”
Also included back into this year’s Trick or Treat Street was a play put on by Publications. The group put on a Dr. Seuss themed play that was based off of “Seussical the Musical.” Junior Brittany Steck was in charge of directing the play.
“The show was incredible,” Steck said. “It was more than I expected, I think the kids got a kick out of the crazy characters.”
Over 12 clubs participated in this year’s Trick or Treat Street and by the end of the night, 477 kids had attended the event. Half of this year’s profits from Trick or Treat Street will be donated to a local elementary school student that is suffering with her immune system being shut down. There was also over $100 raised for the little girl to help pay for her hospital bills.
“[The night] was busy but fun and I think think it was cool we had such a good turn out with the number of clubs involved,” StuCo sponsor Jani Wilkens said. “It was the most we’ve ever had.”
