ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) ─ A local college gives parents and kids a warmer alternative to do some trick-or-treating.
Rock Valley College hosted the Halloween event Thursday evening. There was activities and candy for the kids inside the student center. Costumes ranged from little witches to the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. RVC leaders say the Thursday snow made for a great turn out.
“We really wanted to focus on bringing the community on campus in kind of a fun way,” said Dean of Enrollment and Retention Sam Morgan. “So, we thought it was the perfect storm in terms of the weather. We have a nice facility here. It’s nice and warm. So, it was really, just kind of, the perfect opportunity.”
At the time of the the interview, Morgan estimated more than 1,800 people had made their way to the Rock Valley College student center.
