For Halloween this year, children and families in the Parramore community joined us for the First Annual UCF Downtown Trick-or-Treat Spooktacular at the downtown campus.

A variety of characters big and small walk to UCF Downtown, just a few blocks from their Pre-K program at the Callahan Neighborhood Center.

A tiny Knight shows Pamela Carroll, dean of the College of Community Innovation and Education, how fairy magic works.

Students walk under a giant, glass bridge connecting two wings of Dr. Phillips Academic Commons, where many students will have the opportunity to attend UCF just minutes from home. Plus, a lion found this purple bat!

A dinosaur, a genie, a princess, an elderly man and Kim Possible from the Callahan Head Start program cheer Happy Halloween! in a UCF Downtown classroom.

A butterfly contemplates her choice of candy from a construction worker.

Bb-8 and Spiderman swap stories about their favorite adventures saving the world, while pirates from legal studies share their treasures with trick-or-treaters.

On her way to Grandma’s house, Little Red Riding Hood stops by the dean’s office with a basket of sweets for trick-or-treaters.

Students giggle at a masked spook and a spooky spider from health management and informatics. Some adults, on the other hand, were a bit startled.

Batgirl meets a mime from public administration.

It’s time to walk across the street to UnionWest at Creative Village for more candy and campus exploring!

Inside, students trick-or-treat next to older, much taller students. Did we mention that there were a lot of bats that day?

We mean, a lot. And spiders, too. Eek!
