Guys and ghouls of all ages can get an early start on trick-or-treating at the Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) Halloween Fest Thursday, Oct. 27 from 6 – 9 p.m. in the Senator Judith Zaffirini Student Success Center lawn.

Admission is free and open to the public.

“The community is invited to join us for free family-friendly fun and costume contests, trick or treating, games and more,” said Teresa Renn, associate director, TAMIU Office of Student Orientation, Leadership and Engagement.

Presented by the TAMIU Student Activities Board, it will include student organizations selling food with sales benefiting student organizations.

“Menu choices are extensive and includes favorites such as raspas, tostilocos, Mexican candies, hot dogs, ice cream and much more,” added Renn.

There will be several costume contests and participants are strongly encouraged to stick to appropriate costumes.

“The University is happy to welcome all to our Halloween Fest a popular, family-friendly tradition here. Because of nationwide sensitivity to clown costumes, the University believes such costumes are not appropriate for this event and reminds all that University Police will be present for the Festival’s duration,” said Renn.

The costume contest schedule is as follows:

  • 7 p.m.  Costume Contest (Ages 0 – 6 months); Costume Contest (Ages 7 months – 1 year)
