Today is Halloween, and all around the Interior, there will be a variety of events for our community to enjoy.
Many places are set to provide indoor activities for little ghouls and goblins.
University of Alaska Fairbanks will be hosting several Halloween events this evening including Halloween at the Museum of the North from 4 to 7, and trick or treating from 5 to 7 at the Moore Bartlett Skarland Complex.
Another host of trick or treating will be the Bentley Mall from 6 to 9pm.
And there will be activities held on Fort Wainwright for Military Members.
North Haven is partnering with the Exchange and FMWR to host a trick–or–treating event, and *indoor* trick or treating event at the Exchange Main Store. They'll be providing face painting, free face painting, candy, lots of kids games and activities, discount pizzas, hot chocolate, and lots of fun."
Bassett Army Community Hospital has always considered itself a vital part of the community and the chain of command definitely embraces that. Having a warm place inside that keeps all the kids safe where you're able to wear your costume without worrying about getting frost bite is a benefit to the community. Everybody loves it and everyone supports it."
In addition to those activities, the Geophysical Institute up at the University of Alaska Fairbanks invites the public and kids to be a part of their Halloween celebration.
The Institute will kick off their event at 2pm and run until 5 pm, with a variety of games, and an opportunity to trick–or–treat at rooms that have been decorated by the staff.
The Public Relations Director for the Geophysical Institute says this is a good opportunity for the public to learn more about what they do.
