This past weekend, Bardians hailing from Suminski Inski to Sands House put on their best-kept wigs, acrylic face paint, and a few blood splattered cardboard cut outs to get into the wicked/spooky vibe. But isn’t Halloween for children to run around the darling houses of Red Hook and collect sweet treats from neighbors? Not at Bard: Halloween has reached a whole new level: evening reaching to a Spring Fling degree of attendance! (Thank you Freddie Gibbs) Every single night of the weekend (Wednesday at 4:20pm through Monday at 4:20am), Bardians were found celebrating the holy holiday through a plethora of events: movie screenings, fire shows, costume contests, pub nights, pumpkin carving, and live musical performances galore. Entertainment Committee hosted two amazing nights at SMOG, WXBC had a super successful SpookFest, Root Cellar has a very Noisey Saturday and there was even a collaborative Funkfest in DTR! SPARC literally ran out of space for all these amazing events hosted by students. Even “alternative” events were a big hit: from Edgar Allen Poe Readings to LARPing through Olin classrooms. A good time was had by all! It was an amazingly successful weekend for SPARC and the student body. But what exactly makes Bard students go crazy for Halloween? Share your thoughts through our new poll:
Not only was this one of the most eventful weekends at Bard this semester but it was also one of the safest. With all the worry about 9G no horrific instances were reported from the college (and thankfully no emails from Ken Cooper or Leon Botstein), that deserves a round of applause considering. So keep it up Bardians!
