The event is free and open to the public. Families from New London and the surrounding areas are invited to attend and bring canned food items for the Gemma Moran United Way/Labor Food Pantry.

The event features family-style fun with holiday-themed arts and crafts, games, storytelling by a host of fanciful witches and goblins, face painting, and a special performance by the Community Dance Ensemble, Inc. Halloween Costume Parades are scheduled throughout the day, so participants are encouraged to wear their holiday best. Balloons, baked goods, hot dogs, popcorn, beverages, and candy apples will also be available for purchase.

The event was originally created in 1994 by Don Helms, professor of Behavioral Sciences, as a way to connect local families with the Mitchell College campus community.

“Last year, as in years past, we had close to 500 members of the local community in attendance. Members of the College community (faculty, staff, and students) volunteered time, energy and creative talent,” said Jennifer Mauro, faculty advisor of the Behavioral Science Club. “The Behavioral Science Club takes pride in this event especially because it provides another opportunity to connect with local families and the community.”

For more information, please contact 860-701-7719 or halloweenfestival@mitchell.edu. Mitchell College is located at 437 Pequot Avenue in New London, Connecticut.
