FSW hosts family-friendly Halloween event in LaBelle

FORT MYERS — Looking for a place to bring your kids for Halloween? Florida SouthWestern State College (FSW) is hosting family-friendly Halloween events this October.

Local families are invited to trick-or-treat and enjoy spooky activities for free at the Thomas Edison (Lee) Campus, Charlotte Campus, Collier Campus, or Hendry/Glades Curtis Center.

“The Southwest Florida community looks forward to our Halloween nights every year, and we’re excited to welcome them back to one of our three campuses or regional center,” said Dr. Sholondo Campbell, director of the office of student engagement. “Our students are responsible for coordinating much of what happens at these events, and they bring their friends and families to join in the fun.”

FSW student clubs and organizations decorate rooms, build haunted houses and even perform as ghosts or monsters. Guests of the college’s Halloween events can also expect to enjoy costume contests, games, face painting, crafts, treats and more.

The Hendry/Glades Curtis Center will host “Haunted Happenings” on Thursday, Oct. 25, from 5 to 8 p.m. in Building B Community Room, 1092 E. Cowboy Way, LaBelle. For information, call 863-674-6001.

Reach out to individual FSW locations for more details. Only children 12 and younger are permitted to wear masks and/or carry fake weapons. Please refrain from wearing inappropriate costumes.
