The event will be held on Wednesday, October 25, from 5:30 to 8 p.m., at the Chuck M. Pohlman Agriculture Complex, located one mile east of campus at the intersection of Highway 35 and Benjamin Avenue in Norfolk. Last year, a record number of 2,505 people attended the event.

“Spooktacular” is sponsored by the Northeast Community College Student Ambassadors and Student Activities Council. Student clubs will host booths with over two dozen games, as well as prizes, candy and other activities to entertain children. Games will require tickets, which can be purchased at the price of four for $1.00 before entering the carnival.  All proceeds will go to student organizations.

Booths and activities will include a petting zoo, a fishing game, a duck pool, pumpkin toss, putt putt golf, pumpkin bowling, cake walk and more. There will also be a children’s haunted house.

The public is invited to enjoy this family event at Northeast Community College. Children are also encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes to “Spooktacular.”
