MCCC hosts Halloween Boo Bash

With Halloween dead and gone, students at MCCC sent it off with a graveyard smash.

On Friday, Nov. 2, students met for one last scare at the Boo Bash in the Cellar of the A building.

Many would think a party after Halloween would be odd, but students didn’t think so as many flocked to the event.

“I didn’t have plans and it seemed like fun,” Taylen Arvay, a student who went to the event said.

There were pool tables, foosball, and air hockey for students to enjoy, as well as a dance floor.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Halloween party without a costume contest.

From the Mad Hatter and Alice in Wonderland to the Scooby Doo gang, many costumes were planned out and coordinated.

Winners of the contest were Alexus Smith and Logan Grey, who were dressed as Dr. Alan Grant and Dr. Ellie Sattler from Jurassic Park.

“We had no idea about coming tonight, but were pretty excited,” Smith said.

Previous student government members Nathan Grodi, Javed Peracha, Mathew Evans, and Joel Spotts were the judges of the costume contest.

“We decided on the Jurassic Park couple because it was a great and relevant couple’s costume,” Grodi said.

“It was represented well and required effort to put together.”

Runner up was Izabel Whiting, who dressed as day of the dead. Nathan Wickenheiser and Courtney Beaudrie came in third, dressed as crazy cat ladies.

DJ Martin, the DJ for last year’s Sweetheart Ball, returned to play for the party.

The event was planned by Student Government.

Student Government member Miranda Benardo said the event was a success.

“There’s more than we were expecting so it’s a good turn out,” Bernardo said.

However, putting on a successful event is no easy task, Student Government President Samantha Beaudrie said.

“We haven’t done this in a while. We weren’t sure how long to prep and what people would want,” she said.

“We wanted it to be inexpensive for students to come.”

Students had the option to pay $5 or pay $2 and bring two canned food items as a donation. The donations will be given to Oaks of Righteousness.
