Halloween HOWL on Saturday will be largest party in Utah

Utah State University will host the 31st annual Halloween party, known as ‘The Howl,’ in the Taggart Student Center on Saturday, Oct. 31, beginning at 8 p.m. With the help of local sponsors, and student volunteers, the party is expected to have entertainment to please all 6500 expected guests. Nationally recognized dance group, Massive Monkees from season four of MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew, will be performing alongside of USU’s dance crews Vilociti and Full Circle. Entertainment will also include Mentalist Craig Karges, an oxygen bar, King Niko Band, a DJ, movies being played throughout the night, and several games and competitions. “On behalf of USU and local sponsors we are fortunate to be able to bring exceptional entertainment this year. We (USU Activities Committee) have worked hard to make sure there is plenty of variety and something for everyone,” said USU Activities Director Josh Nagao. Local businesses that helped sponsor ‘The Howl’ include USU Charter Credit Union, and Vooray. This is the first year that local businesses have donated money to support ‘The Howl.’ According to Nagao, the sponsors enable Utah State to go beyond their set budget and bring a broader option of entertainment this year. The theme for ‘The Howl,’ is ‘Alice in Wonderland,’ with the slogan being “Unhinged Reality.” Guests should expect a chilling version of the Disney movie, with “mad hatters,” “rabbit holes,” and dark “caterpillar forests.”The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Student Association (LDSSA) is working with the USU Activities Committee, for the second year in a row, and helping plan several games and competitions that will take place on the bottom floor of the TSC. Tickets can be purchased at the USU ticket office located in the Spectrum. The rate for USU students is $15 or $10 with a discount card that will be printed in the Statesman October 21, 23 and 26 and is re-usable. Non-USU student’s rates include $20 in advance, and $25 the day of the event. All guests must present a valid state or USU ID at the door. No props, masks, or weapons. Generally offensive dress will not be admitted. The Utah State Activities Committee (STAB) is responsible for planning all major activities throughout the year. The committee meets every Tuesday at 8 p.m. on the third floor of the TSC. Any students wanting to help plan events are encouraged to come.
