The 11th annual free Halloween Monster Mash, a collaborative community service event sponsored by Rutgers University Residence Life on the Cook/Douglass Campus, will be held Friday Oct. 24, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Cook/Douglass Recreation Center Gymnasium.
The Halloween Monster Mash is a community outreach event that provides an alternative trick-or-treat experience to elementary school children in New Brunswick and Piscataway. Various student organizations at Rutgers set up activity tables for the young visitors and reward their efforts with treats. Activities include pumpkin painting, crafts, costume contest, “Zombie Walk” contest and relay races. Last year, approximately 1,100 people participated in the event.
