LSU hosts Halloween BOOzar

Caroline Downer

The LSU Athletics Department is gearing up for the 17th-annual Halloween BOOzar event held Oct. 30 from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Carl Maddox Fieldhouse.

Here, local children will be greeted by LSU student-athletes of every sport while they are provided a safe and fun trick-or-treating environment.

Along with the student-athletes will be their coaches and trainers, as well as cheerleaders, Tiger Girls and Mike the Tiger. Each team will have an activity related to their sport for children to take part in, and trick-or-treaters will be able to take pictures and get autographs from their favorite players.

All student-athletes will be dressed in their best Halloween gear, so children are encouraged to wear their costumes as well.

Admission is free, however LSU Athletics asks visitors to bring canned goods that will be donated to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank.
