Surry Community College’s annual Halloween Spooktacular hosted by the Student Government Association on Oct. 25 was enough fun to make archenemies Batman and the Joker become friends. Children from the community, like these brothers, were invited to celebrate Halloween with games, activities and a costume contest on Surry’s Dobson campus.


Superheroes, villains, princesses and monsters all made their way to Surry Community College on the evening of Oct. 25 when the college’s Student Government Association hosted its annual Halloween Spooktacular.

Children in the community came out to show off their costumes and partake in various Halloween themed games and activities including a costume contest with prizes for several age divisions. The event boasted a DJ, bounce house, hayrides around the Dobson campus and tons of delectable snacks available for purchase.

Many of the college’s clubs and individual departments operated tables and booths with interactive activities for participants. One could shoot zombies, decorate their own pumpkin to take home, and get a washable tattoo all in one night.

“I had so many compliments from parents and community members on how fun the games were and how much their kids loved every single station,” said Surry’s Coordinator for Student and Community Engagement Kasey Martin.

With approximately 300 guests in attendance, Martin estimates this to be one of Spooktacular’s most successful years. More than $750 was raised from game ticket sales and food sales, all of which will go toward the SCC Angel Tree to assist students in need during the Christmas season; with such a profit, SGA will be able to sponsor 13 students signed up for the Angel Tree.

Martin was thrilled with the event’s outcome. She explained the Halloween celebration’s success by saying, “It’s because of the hard work of these students and club members that we are able to pull off events like this. I can’t thank the clubs, their advisors and the maintenance department enough for all their cooperation and support.”
