University of Richmond students will be hosting area children at the 12th annual Halloween Trick-or-Treat Street festival at Old Fraternity Row across from the Robins Center Oct. 30, 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. The festival will include games, crafts, haunted houses, trick-or-treating, face and pumpkin painting, magicians, mazes and more. Admission is $8 per child; adults are free.

The event, organized by the university’s fraternities and sororities, “provides an enjoyable and safe outlet for children and parents to experience the magic of all hallows eve while supporting a local charity,” said Katie Der, one of this year’s organizers.

For the third year, 5-year-old Cole Hafer of Richmond, who is in need of a liver transplant, will benefit from Trick-or-Treat Street. The Hafer family is raising money for Cole through the Children’s Organ Transplant Association (www.cotaforcoleh.com).

"This year, more than 30 on-campus organizations will be involved. It has really become an event that students have gravitated toward in the last few years. UR students really enjoy making connections with people outside the university in the greater Richmond community," said Dan Colosimo, student co-chair.
