WYOMISSING, Pa. — Penn State Berks will hold its Fall Fest on Friday, Oct. 21. The event has two-parts — a "family fun" program from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Perkins Plaza and the ‘witching hour’ haunted tours for adults from 7 to 10 p.m. 

Space is limited for the "family fun" portion of the event and preregistration is required for attendees.

In addition, a waiver must be signed and handed in at the registration table for all attendees under the age of 18. Both portions of the event are free and open to both the campus community and the general public, and refreshments will be served. A parade will be held at 6 p.m. and children are encouraged to dress in costumes for trick-or-treat activities.

During the “witching hour,” student Lion Ambassador tour guides will take attendees on a haunted tour of the campus. Penn State Berks community members dressed as vampires, witches and other scary characters will tell stories of the ghosts and legends that surround Penn State Berks. This part of the event is not recommended for children. Tours will begin at the Perkins Plaza and pre-registration is not required. The last tour will depart at 9 p.m.
