This year the Fall Festival won’t end after the candy runs out. The Student Government Association is set to host a Halloween-themed dance immediately following the Fall Festival. All FPC students are invited.
The members of SGA want the students at FPC to have a fun college experience and they believe that putting on a dance will rival the experiences that students at four-year colleges receive, said SGA co-adviser Lydia Howell.
“We want to make sure we have real college experiences for the students. Just because we are small doesn’t mean we have to be boring,” Howell said.
The dance will take place from 8:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. in the CLC hallway. There are games to play and prizes to win with a best and worst costume contest during the dance. Additionally, for those who are more on the quiet side, there will be a movie night in CLC 19 showing “The Conjuring” and something a little less spooky for the weaker hearted viewers in CLC 25 with a movie that is yet to be decided.
Not only will the SGA be hosting the dance, but the group will be putting up a booth along with the rest of the student organizations at FPC for the Fall Festival itself. The Fall Festival, which takes place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the CLC and is open to community members, has always been an event that has allowed students to do something for the community.
“The FPC students really love hosting and attending it (the Fall Festival) and they usually don’t realize how much fun it is until they do it,” Cheryl Webster, fall festival coordinator.
SGA will be putting on a photo booth along with many other booths such as the Cosmetology’s nail painting, the Nursing cookie walk, and the baseball team tattoos.
