By WVUA 23 Digital Reporter Kenzie Morgenlaender
TUSCALOOSA, Ala- Every year The Alabama Panhellenic Association hosts Trick-or-Treat on Sorority Row for Tuscaloosa community members, but this year it is canceled.
This event traditionally allows families with children under the age of 12 to Trick-or-Treat at the UA sorority houses.
“Each year, this event draws hundreds from the Tuscaloosa and Northport communities,” said Bekkah Logan, Director of Public Relations for UA’s Panhellenic Association.
It’s a night full of activities, treats, and opportunities to show off everyone’s favorite Halloween costumes.
“In addition to getting everyone excited about Halloween, it is a fun opportunity for Panhellenic to interact with members of the community,” said Logan.
This year’s event is canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“We were really looking forward to engaging with the community for a fun Halloween celebration, however, due to COVID-19 we felt it would be in everyone’s best interests to cancel this year’s event,” said Logan.
Panhellenic hopes to focus its efforts on planning for the future.
“Though we look forward to this event every fall, we are confident that we made the right decision to keep our campus and Tuscaloosa community on the safe side,” said Kendall Davenport, Director of Comm. Development & Outreach.
Pannahellic’s upcoming Holly Jolly Holiday event and annual spring Easter Egg Hunt are canceled as well.
The University of Alabama Panhellenic community is hopeful that they can host their favorite community-wide events next year—COVID pending.
