College transforms into Trick-or­­-Treat Street, breaks attendance record

Lions, tigers, bears, even dinosaurs and many other costumes were seen at this year’s Trick-or-Treat Street. The doors of SCCC were flooded with children and parents waiting in line for their turn to go through the student union to receive their candy. This year the Trick-or-Treat Street event attracted more people than usual. According to Wade Lyon, director of student life and leadership, an all-time high of 1,241 participants were counted as opposed to the 987 participants counted last year. “The line of kids was, like, never ending,” dance team member Lesly Vasquez said. Once inside, children were able to go through booths set up by campus clubs and organizations. A total of nine booths were set up and each had an activity and candy that was handed out to children that participated. Due to the number of children, many clubs ran out of candy towards the end of the night. “I felt bad telling the kids we ran out of candy,” said HALO member Odalys Martinez. “There were still a lot of kids in line and we had to pack up our table.” Trick-or-Treat Street is an annual event started in 2000 to provide area families a safe Halloween activity on campus. The event has grown from it’s first 50 participating children in 2000, to the record-breaking number we have now.
