The Southern Illinois University Halloween tradition continued with the 2017 edition of the ‘Unofficial Halloween.’ This October bar crawl took place at the Stix and Traxx on October 16th and 17th. This is an annual party that could match the level of excitement Octoberfest brings. With this event, however, we got to wear costumes making it as much of a spectacle as it is a party.
In the town of Carbondale, many bars close and kegs are banned for the Halloween shenanigans that come with this event. This is a result of rioting that has taken place throughout the town’s history as a result of students partying a little too hard. So in response to this, the good students at SIU take to the streets and boo-ze it up all night. Attendees stumbled around like drunk zombies last weekend enjoying good music and even better company making this year another successful ‘Unofficial Halloween’ that was ‘officially’ a great and wild time.
While some may have regretted some decisions in the morning I’m sure most agreed there time at SIU this week was well worth it. Here is a recap video filmed and edited by our College Ambassador at SIU – Rashad. Follow Rashad on Instagram and Snapchat @xRashadx.
