Whether you have four problem sets due in the next two days or are still reeling from your 10% score on the Ec1010 midterm, Halloween is coming up to help you blow off some steam. Although the temperatures are dropping quickly, Harvard students always manage to make this night a fun one, and Flyby is here to help you relieve some of your stress with a round-up of what’ll be happening on campus this weekend.


Dark and Stormy Night @ Lowell

If you’re hoping to start the weekend early, Lowell’s got you covered with a night of scary stories and good food hosted by the Harvard Voice Actors’ Guild. This is a cultured way to balance all of the other activities you might be partaking in this weekend, and will be held from 8 pm to 9:30 p.m. at the Lowell JCR.


Triple Treat: a Halloween Jam

The fun won’t stop on Friday night, when you can pregame any parties with a spirited acapella concert. Here, you’ll be able to reminisce on all of the singing talents that you don’t have. For those interested, the concert will be held at 7 p.m. in Sanders Theatre, and tickets are $10 ($20 non-student) for a night with The Harvard Din & Tonics, Radcliffe Pitches, and the Harvard Krokodiloes.


If you’re looking for something more funky and spooky, the Underground, Glee Club Lite, and 'Cliffe Notes will be performing their style of acapella in Lowell Lecture hall from 7:30-9:00 p.m. Tickets are $5 for a night that promises to be filled with “scares, laughs, and music.”

The Ha!-lloween Show

To continue your night with even more laughs, head to Harvard College Stand-up Comic Society’s Annual Halloween Standup Comedy Show. This event, in Science Center A from 8:00-9:30 p.m, is your one chance to enjoy one of HCSUCS’s largest shows of the year.

The Bat Show

In the dramatic spirit of Halloween, Three Letter Acronym presents a unique comedic experience completely in the dark. You won’t want to miss a second of this all sound improv show at 8 p.m. and 10 in Lowell Bell Tower Room, especially because they literally won’t let in late-comers.


Nightmare on Dunster Street

Join the ghost of John Thornton Kirkland for a party, pizza, and drinks at Kirkland House from 8:00-10:00 p.m. Be sure to bring your HUID for entrance and wear your most impressive famous person costume because there will be contest at 9 with celeb judges.

Haunted Hall

Last, but not least, is the Haunted Hall, a revamp from last year’s event in Annenberg. This year, the Harvard College Events Board, the First-Year Social Committee, the Harvard Undergraduate Council, and the Cambridge Queen’s Head Pub will be hosting a college-wide event featuring different activities in Memorial Hall. The Pub will kick things off at 8:00 p.m. with free food and drinks (alcohol available for purchase 21+), followed by a costume “catwalk” at 9:00pm and a live student band at 11:00pm. At 10:30 p.m., a transformed Annenberg will be open for dancing with a DJ, food, and drinks. Come to this event prepared with your HUID and costume, and be sure to take pictures with friends at the green-screen photo booth.
