The 16th annual Spook-tacular Childrens Carnival was all around spook-tacular. The event was held from 5:30-8 p.m. at the Pohlman Agriculture Complex on Wednesday Oct. 24. There were over 35 booths put together by student clubs and groups. Booths had fun activities, games, prizes and candy for children to enjoy. The carnival was by the student activities group as part of the weeks Wacky Wednesday.  

The event had free admission with a charge of $1 for four tickets. Current Northeast Community College Students got five free tickets by showing their Northeast ID. Booths required one or two tickets each. All of the earnings from this event went to student organizations. The organizations put on a variety of games and activities for families to enjoy. Many games related to the clubs themselves. The Vet Tech Club had put on a petting zoo which featured ponies, dogs, a snake, alligator, and a ferret.  A few other activities included a haunted house, face painting, ring toss and pumpkin games. Some games had themes that interested children such as Paw Patrol, The Incredibles, and Monsters Inc.  

Many children came dressed up in costumes. Ranging from superhero’s to princesses to dinosaurs and all in between. Some parents also participated in costumes and matched with their children. A family collectively was The Incredibles family from The Incredibles movie. Another family was characters from Finding Nemo, two children being the fish Nemo and Dory.  

The next Wacky Wednesday event will be a Halloween dance on Wednesday Oct. 31. The dance will be held in the student center at 9 p.m. It is free for Northeast students with a current ID and $5 for guests. Costumes are encouraged, but not required.
