The University of Northern Colorado will celebrate Halloween with a variety of activities, including haunted houses and trick or treating for the public.

The annual Safe Trick or Treat in UNC residence halls will be 6-8 p.m. p.m. on Halloween. Children and families from the community are invited to trick or treat in a safe environment.

Haunted Harrison, the traditional haunted house event in the basement of Harrison Residence hall, will expand this year with tours from 7-11 p.m. on the Friday and Saturday preceding Halloween as well as on Halloween.

On Halloween night, the haunted house will be toned down for younger children from 7-8 p.m. before going back to "full-fright" mode for the rest of the evening.

Admission is $1 per person or a canned food donation, with all proceeds going to the Weld County Food bank.

The Cesar Chavez Cultural Center will host a Semana de los Muertos (Week of the Dead) haunted house from 6-9 p.m. on Halloween. Admission is free.

Pre-Halloween activities in the University Center on campus include a pumpkin carving contest on Thursday and Friday, and an office decorating contest and trick or treating from 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
