To do list: Halloweekend fun!

FHS students share what they did during Halloween weekend
Kassie Ferris’s 2023 Halloween party

Halloween is an opportunity to express oneself in a way that showcases the individual’s personality. Halloween is celebrated on Oct. 31 but is also enjoyed during the weekend before, some nicknamed the Friday and Saturday before Halloween as halloweekend. 

An article written by reporter Sarah Lemire from ‘Today’ lists activities to partake in during Halloween weekend, which would include going to a haunted amusement park, halloween trivia night and making Halloween inspired baked goods. 

Whether or not individuals choose to stay home doing Halloween activities or host a Halloween party like sophomore Kassie Ferris, halloweekend is a chance to dress up and enjoy the holiday.

“When hosting a party I enjoy bringing everyone together and being able to talk and make memories with people,” Ferris said. 

Ferris has hosted multiple parties and had a similar Halloween party this past year, but she knows that hosting a party can also be a difficult process. 

“The thing I find most difficult is figuring out who to invite and making sure everyone is having fun and enjoying themselves,” Ferris said. 

Ferris has had parties like this in the past but this year went well according to her. 

“I think for the most part [the Halloween party] went well, I think everyone made a lot of memories,” Ferris said.

Ferris illuminates the idea that halloweekend is a chance to show Halloween spirit and enjoy Halloween themed activities for the holiday. 

“My parents always had Halloween parties with all their friends when I was growing up, and I always got to invite a friend or two,” Ferris said. “They stopped having them after COVID hit so I wanted to have a Halloween party with my friends so I had one last year and it was so much fun so I had another one this year.” 

While Ferris was busy hosting her annual Halloween party, freshman Teresa Schaffer was spending her time elsewhere.

“I went to Indy Scream Park and carved and painted pumpkins,” Schaffer said. 

Indy Scream Park has been growing in popularity since it first opened.

“It is a growing industry,” Todd Harmeson, the general manager of Indy Scream Park for the 2nd year, said.

While it is a growing industry many of the people who go are younger people including students in high school. 

“[Halloweekend] is so much fun, I love seeing all the different costumes and decorations,” Ferris said.
