With Halloween right around the corner, it is time to head out to Northeast Texas Community College for the 33rd Annual Scare Affair. This year’s event is from 6 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 23 at the plaza of the main NTCC campus (located on FM 1735 near Chapel Hill ISD). There will be trick-or-treating, low cost games for all ages, a costume contest with cash prizes and much more.

“After having to cancel last year due to COVID-19, we are pleased to once again host our biggest community event of the year,” Kaymon Farmer, Director of Student Development and Inclusion, said. “We hope everyone will come out and join us for an evening of safe, affordable fun for the whole family,” 

In addition to past favorites like the cakewalk and the hayride, Scare Affair will also feature laser tag, a giant slide, bounce houses, face and hair painting, tons of games and food. 

“This year we have added more digital influence to the Scare Affair with the laser tag and digital map that shows where all of the booths are. The costume contest will have a digital aspect as well,“ Farmer said. 

Registration for the costume contest will be from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Student Union Building. There will be two categories – one for adults and one for children ages 10 and under. The top five finalists will be posted in the SUB at 8 p.m. The winners will be announced at 8:30 p.m. Prizes are $100 for first place and $50 for second place in both age groups.
