Western Iowa Tech is getting into the Halloween spirit this weekend.
The college campus will become the host of ghosts and goblins haunting a forest. Victims will go on a guided walk through the woods and get some up-close experience with the creepy creatures dwelling within.
But getting the pants scared off you before Halloween is going to benefit some Siouxland organizations as well. The Fun and Entertainment Committee from WIT has decided that proceeds from the $5 entry fee will go to the Crittenton Center in Sioux City, or with a donated canned good, you can get a dollar off your entry fee and help their food bank.
"They're local. It's a charity that we're confident that most of the money and items we gave them would go directly to people in need. The person that donated to them last year with the group said that when they gave the representative the money she was just in tears... and really really thankful. And we were just thinking it would be really great to make a difference. And get some money and food and stuff to people that needed it," said FEC Chairman Alex Duvick.
The forest will be open Friday and Saturday night from 8PM until midnight. All ages are welcome... and they suggest some good walking shoes for the trek.
