Red River College is getting spookier.

October 23 kicks off Halloween week with Pumpkin Pie, a great end to a long work week.

Get your pie between 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. You can find a slice at the Exchange District Campus in P107 and in the library hallway at Notre Dame Campus. 

“Who wouldn’t want free food?” said Roy Lorenzo Pillotes, an EDC student.

If you’ve ever wished you could have gone to Hogwarts, it’s your lucky day. Honeydukes, the marvelous wizarding sweets shop, is going on the road. Keep an eye and ear out for the trolley to get some free candy throughout the day.

Cereal and milk will be served in the Cave Lounge from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. for “Cereal” Killer Movie Monday, get a bowl and watch halloween classics like Child’s PlayPet Cemetery and Gremlins.

If the movies didn’t scare you enough, explore the carnival-themed haunted house from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Get ready to be spooked!
