AUSTIN, Texas—The children of staff, faculty and students from The University of Texas at Austin will have a safe place to wear costumes and enjoy fun activities during Longhorn Halloween in the Frank Erwin Center from 2-5 p.m. on Oct. 29.
The program is sponsored by the Office of the President and coordinated by the university’s Office of Relationship Management and University Events, a unit of the Office of Public Affairs. The program receives support from the University Federal Credit Union.
The free event, open to children of staff, faculty and students at the university, will feature activities such as games, carnival events, a haunted house, face painting, fortune telling, a chemistry circus and fire safety programs that will include a close-up look at a real fire engine. Last year, more than 3,000 children attended and 800 volunteers from throughout the university community provided their time and creative talents toward the event.
Free parking for those attending Longhorn Halloween will be available in the Trinity Parking Garage at the corner of Trinity and Martin Luther King Boulevard. Parking will not be available in Lot 108 to the south of the Erwin Center.
