Carroll College

HELENA- Carroll College announced Thursday it was canceling the annual Guadalupe Hall trick-or-treat.

Organizers say in a news release that while Carroll enjoyed hosting the event, it is unable to continue because of fire safety concerns.

The event included guided tours through decorated hallways with students handing out treats.

Carroll College Director of Community Living Maureen Ward told MTN the event started was started several years ago when there were fewer kid-safe Halloween events around Helena.

Ward adds that residents and staff will miss seeing the kids.

“We will certainly miss all of the cute costumes and the princesses and the goblins. But we are looking at the various outreach events that we offer, and we think that this is one we can’t continue anymore,” says Ward.

Carroll will continue its partnership with Broadwater Elementary School. That partnership includes a Halloween costume parade through campus offices
