This year 75 clubs and organizations were invited
to participate, including the band, the HPU Cheerleaders, the
dance team, and Spirit Club.
This is a great opportunity for clubs and organizations to get
involved,” said Heather Hubbard, the director of Student
Life. “It also provides a safe trick-or-treat environment
for the community.”
Halloween Hoopla also serves as a huge pep rally to introduce
the men’s basketball team. A blue and green game is scheduled,
where the team splits in half and plays against itself.
Events scheduled throughout the night include a dunking contest
and a best costume and booth contest.
Monster’s Ball happens on Oct. 30 from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.
at Planet Hollywood. Tickets go on sale for $10 for students
Oct. 22 on Fort Street Mall, and they can be purchased up to
the date of the event. The cost for guests and at the door will
be $12. Food and transportation from Waikiki, Hawai‘i
Loa, and the downtown campus will be provided. There will also
a costume contest on this night as well.
