Costumes, candy and kids were featured at the annual Halloween carnival on the PCC Lawn on Thursday, Oct. 29.

People staffing the booths were required to be part of a club, organization or department.

Enrique Gonzales, 25, a business major, said, “This event was originally designed for children from around the community. If you live in North Long Beach, you have to drive somewhere to get good candy and be safe. This way, children can come here, have fun, dress up and get candy.”

A member of the women’s social-service club Akna, Kennedy Holland-Jauregue, 21, an anthropology major, said, “We are very happy to be here. It is a nice opportunity to showcase a bit of culture at the Halloween carnival.”

Despite the wind, Jill Collins, a sociology major, and Christine Wiley, a kinesiology major, were making sure the Black Student Union Club booth game was going well.
