500 children expected for 28th annual Boo Bash

Join us Tuesday, Oct. 27, for a family-fun-filled evening of carnival games, trick-or-treating and spooky tours!

Each October, the St. Mary’s University Residence Hall Association invites the community to a Halloween event affectionately known as Boo Bash. About 500 children are expected to attend this year.

Who: Children ages 14 and under, with adult supervision
What: Local children trick-or-treat in residence halls and have other Halloween fun
Where: St. Mary’s University campus, Flex Field
When: Tuesday, Oct. 27 from 6-9 p.m.
Parking: Lots D, F, K, H. Use 36th Street or Culebra entrances to campus. See map.
Cost: Free

Registered Student Organizations host activity booths for the children and Hall Councils decorate the residence halls in scary and non-scary themes so children can sign up for tours and trick-or-treat throughout the halls. The event requires more than 200 volunteers and the support of various departments on campus.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Grant Batchelder at rha@stmarytx.edu or 210-436-3053.
