You’ve been planning your group costumes, stocking up on your candy of choice, and getting ready to rage. Finally, Halloweekend has arrived, bringing with it some solid party options. Here’s a breakdown of the spookiest college-sponsored events going down in the next few days.
Heaven and Hell
Currier HoCo’s annual fright fest is coming around again on Friday from 10:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. at the Fishbowl. Choose heaven or hell and have a good time—just don’t get stuck at the Quad. Note that in years past, attendees paid a $2 admission fee, but this year drinks will cost $3 each for those over 21 instead. A devilish price hike, if you ask us.
Also on Friday, from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. in Annenberg, the First Year Social Committee is hosting a freshman-only Halloween dance. Yet another good opportunity to network with the bright minds of 2021, but this time in costume!
This fair in Harvard Yard kicks off a four-day event series run by the College Events Board—this one’s co-sponsored with DAPA, hence the name. From 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, attendees can eat snacks, play games, and carve pumpkins in Harvard Yard. Other CEB-sponsored events include a farm outing on Sunday, film screenings at the Queen’s Head on Monday, and trick-or-treating on Tuesday.
It’s not technically Halloween-themed, but from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, the Quad Houses are hosting a fall festival on the Quad Lawn. Get into the autumnal spirit and eat some free food while you’re at it.
So put on your cat ears, forget your psets, and get to it—there’s Halloween fun out there just waiting to be had.
