INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Get out the costumes and the trick-or-treat candy baskets now.

Marian University on Thursday evening has invited anyone to attend its trick-or-treating and kids’ activities from 5:30-7 p.m. at locations throughout the campus, 3200 Cold Spring Road.

“All families will receive a free trick-or-treat bag and a campus map of where the trick-of-treating stations are located,” said a news release from the university.

President Daniel Elsener and his family are expected to join in the fun, dressing in costumes, handing out candy and leading activities. Residence halls are decorated for Halloween, too.

The private Roman Catholic university has about 3,600 students.

Registration online was encouraged but not required.
