Games, prizes, candy and dress up planned at Northeast event

NORFOLK, Neb. -- The 20th annual Spooktacular children’s carnival will be held Wednesday, Oct. 25, from 5:30 to 8 p.m., at the college’s Chuck M. Pohlman Agriculture Complex, 2301 E. Benjamin Ave., one mile east of campus at the intersection of Highway 35 and Benjamin Avenue. The event has hosted over 2,000 people in previous years.

Spooktacular is sponsored by the Northeast Community College Student Activities Council and College Engagement. Student clubs will host booths with several games, as well as prizes, candy and other activities to entertain children. 

Admission is free, but games will require tickets, which can be purchased at the price of four for $1 before entering the carnival. All proceeds will go to student organizations.

Booths and activities will include several games such as plinko, putt-putt golf, soccer ball knockdown, build a pumpkin, coffin cornhole, among many others. There will also be a children’s haunted house.

A Northeast agriculture club will sell hot dogs and drinks in the concession stand at the Ag Complex. 

The public is invited to enjoy this family-friendly event at Northeast Community College. Children are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes to Spooktacular, but they are not required.
