Residence Life at Missouri Southern State University will host the annual Community Safe Halloween event from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 31, in Billingsly Student Center’s Connor Ballroom.

Families can expect interactive, carnival-style games and plenty of candy in a safe trick-or-treating environment, said Josh Doak, the university’s director of Residence Life. This year, there will be a room with a Day of the Dead theme, inspired by Disney-Pixar’s 2017 film “Coco.”

Admission is free and open to the public.
