October on the Quad Almost Here

Friday, October 22, 2010

The University of West Georgia hosts its Carve on the Quad and Safe
Treat events on Thursday, Oct. 28.

Bring your kids, pumpkins and tools to the gathering at the UWG Academic Quad.

This is one of Carroll County's premier Halloween events, giving children a safe and fun environment.

Carving is from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Awards will be announced at 7 p.m. on the steps of the Humanities building.

This is the third year of the partnership between West Georgia's Department of Art and Housing and Residence Life.

Student groups will provide trick-or-treating activities for kids in the community and candles for pumpkins.

Last year's Carve on the Quad featured more than 225 pumpkins, which were lit and on display for Safe Treat. Our first year featured 180 pumpkins.

Students and faculty will do the popular iron pour about 8 p.m.

The pumpkin carving and painting contest close Art Incend Week on campus, which features a student art exhibit, ceramics anagama kiln firings, sidewalk chalk drawings and a drawing marathon.
