A look into the Halloween dance


Kaylea Kuhlman, Reporter

The Halloween Dance took place Oct. 31 from 9 to 12 a.m. as part of the Student Activities Councils Wacky Wednesday. It was held in the lower half of the student center. The event featured a DJ, photo booth and a costume contest.  

Around 200 students showed up for the Halloween evening. Lots of students came dressed up for the occasion in a variety of costumes. Multiple students got rewarded for their costumes during the contest towards the end of the night. The contest was divided in three sections; male, female and groups. The male winner was dressed in tights and a wig. The female winner was dressed as a character from Mama Mia. Winner of the group contest was a couple dressed as Beauty and The Beast. The winners received gift cards worth over $200 in total. 

The DJ featured songs that most students knew. He played fun songs with dances such as the ‘chicken dance’ and the ‘macarena’.  He incorporated a few old pop songs such as “Party in the USA” by Miley Cyrus and “Tik Tok” by Kesha. Classic Halloween song “Thriller” by Michael Jackson was also featured.
