Five ways to spend your weekend

Assembling the perfect zombie or flapper costume takes a lot of work and is almost as important as finding the right event to attend Halloween weekend. Good thing we have one of those issues solved for you.

Check out these five fun things to do this weekend, preferably all dressed in your costume.


  1. Have you heard about the hauntings across campus? Legends of the Dark hosted by Trout Hall is back for another year of excitement. Friday, the hour-long tours will tell the stories ghosts that are rumored to roam around campus. The tours leave every 10 minutes from the Down Under Food Court between 7:30 and 10:20 p.m. Tickets are $3 if purchased in advance from Trout Hall or $5 if purchased at the door.
  2. Everyone loves prizes. Soaring Eagle Casino will be hosting Fright Night Part II when $15,000 in cash prizes will be given out. Put on your best costume and enter to win $500 in one of the 15 categories. Watch the live Freak Show, show off your best dance moves and try one of the spooky drink specials. Tickets are $10 for people 18 years and older.
  3. Most people don’t consider food art, but the University Art Gallery thinks otherwise. The exhibition called Consumption features a look inside the refrigerators and meals of people around the world, describing their occupation and living situation as well as other pieces of art revolving around the topic of food. The exhibition makes guests view food in a new way through the artist’s interpretation. Guests can catch the last days of the exhibit on Friday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. or Saturday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  4. If you’re in need of a good laugh, come out to see Rocky Horror Picture Show at the Broadway Theatre, 216 E. Broadway. The humorous musical that is commonly called a “cult classic” will play Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and midnight.
  5. Get ready for a night of fashion on Saturday for the Threads “Best of the Best” show featuring student and alumni designs. Models will strut on the catwalk, showing off the best clothes Threads has presented. Following the show, there will be a dessert and beverage reception where guests can meet the designers of their favorite pieces. The show starts at 7 p.m. in the College of Education and Human Services Building. Tickets are $30.
