Watch: Spooky fun for everyone

Hundreds of Wright State students, faculty, staff and alumni took part in a unique celebration that combines traditional Halloween customs of North America with other fall holiday practices from around the world.

The celebration included customs from African American Kwanzaa, the Asian Indian Diwali, the Chinese and Vietnamese Mid-Autumn Festival, Chusok, the Korean Thanksgiving, the Japanese Bon holiday, the Nigerian Yam Festival, The Mexican Day of the Dead, and the Native American Fall Harvest.

“Getting all of the different cultures involved in Halloween and bringing everyone together, I think it’s really great,” said Trent Fuller, a mechanical engineering student who volunteered at the event on Oct 19.

The Multicultural Halloween is a collaborative effort of several Wright State student organizations and features diversity of music and dance from all over the world, a variety of multicultural foods, cultural quizzes with prizes awarded, face painting, caricature artists, balloon sculptures and a costume contest for adults and children.Watch:
