University Courtyard, the on-campus living facility for students of California State University, Fresno, will hold its annual Halloween Carnival for children in the community from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Oct. 31 in Homan Hall.

The carnival, organized by students, is free and open to the public. It will feature games, activities, prizes and indoor trick-or-treating.

“Students care about the Fresno community,” said Olivia Muñoz, resident director of Homan Hall and this year’s carnival organizer. “Our goal for the annual carnival is to provide a safe and fun atmosphere for families to enjoy Halloween.”

Invitations were sent to area schools as well as the Stone Soup program for new immigrants, whose headquarters are just west of the campus. Many faculty and staff also bring their children to the carnival each year.

Homan Hall is on the corner of Cedar and Shaw avenues. Parking will be free that evening in Lot G, which has an entrance from Cedar at Scott Avenue, just north of Shaw.
