The doors warned "enter if you dare." The hallway floor was flooded with black and orange balloons, and the doorways were lined with streamers.
Students who walked through the hallowed hallway doors were greeted by The Cat in the Hat, and Effie Trinket from "The Hunger Games."
The first Hallowed Hallways was put on Saturday in the Barnes Hall Basement by the Robinson and Barns Hall Council and executive board.
“I like events like this because (they are) the most fun I have since I’ve been at Central," freshman Natalie Koehler said. “I like going to events like this because it gives people something to do on Halloween if they don’t have anything planned.”
This event is part of "Sober in October," a campus-wide initiative to give students an alternative to drinking during a month of popular weekends like Halloween and Homecoming.
Surrounding rooms had games like pin the nose on the Jack-o-Lantern, apple bobbing, costume contests and a pumpkin gutting competition. The films "Hocus Pocus" and "Amityville Horror" were also shown.
“It’s a big undertaking considering this is the first event that Robinson and Barnes Hall’s E-Board has ever put together, but it’s worth it," said will be a lot of fun and it will be something that R&B will be known for in the future hopefully," said Hannah Bleech, a junior and president of the R&B e-Board.
