Going mad for Fright Night

Attendees fell down a rabbit hole at this year’s fun-filled Fright Night, which took place at Sacred Hearts Academy on Oct. 25. This year’s theme was Through the Looking Glass, inspired by fantasy novel and Disney favorite “Alice in Wonderland.” During the event, attendees hopped through the haunted hallway, played ghoulish games and tried terrifying treats.

“It was amazing to see our student volunteers together to make this event truly possible,” said Student Council Community Service Assistant Ella Blu Pakele.

People walk and enjoy the various activities on campus. Some booths included, a bean bag toss, Mad Hatter hat-making and an Instagram poster contest. Attendees could also enjoy “Alice in Wonderland” on the big screen and meet some of the characters.
Young children enjoy the PonyCycle, which is a bicycle that looks like an animal. The cycle goes as fast as the person could pedal.

The entrance to the haunted hallway was brightly decorated with lights and clocks. This popular Fright Night feature included many recognizable scenes from “Alice in Wonderland,” such as going down the rabbit hole and the Queen of Hearts throne room.
