Trick or Treat Street

Halloween Spirit

UHLers dressed up for Trick or Treat Street

On October 29, UHL students decorated the house to prepare for the Trick or Treat Street. The Trick or Treat Street at 9th Street Park allows children from nearby neighborhoods to have a safe space to trick or treat a few days before Halloween. The UHL program participated by not only have decorations, but also by having students in costumes hand out candy to children.

Derrick Gallegos (2016, Pre-Med) dressed up as Superman. While some of the decorated houses on 9th Street Park scared the children, Derrick’s costume helped allay their fear. "It was boring until the kids showed up and I wanted to eat the candy," Derrick said.

Activities at the Trick or Treat Street included things like a football toss and knocking down dolls. Unlike previous years, there were more adult oriented attractions, like loud music and scarier house decorations. However, the UHLers were there to pass out candy to kids first and foremost.

"I think we had better candy than other houses," Derrick said. "They were passing out dum-dums and tootsie rolls."
