HalloweenFest - An Opportunity for Fun and Service

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

Marymount will host its Annual HalloweenFest for local children, many of whom are disadvantaged, on Friday, October 25, from 3:30 to 7 p.m. on Marymount’s Main Campus, located at 2807 North Glebe Road, Arlington, VA.

Sponsored by Campus Ministry, the Office of Campus and Residential Services, and the Office of Student Activities, this student-run event includes an afternoon of trick-or-treating through decorated residence halls, as well as games and contests in the Lee University Center.
