Sprawling across the band hallway, a misty path of strobe lights and gravestones twisted into the unknown. Students, parents, and children in various costumes hurried through as actors popped out of shadowed corners. Once the exit was reached, attendees headed to the cafeteria to play spooky games and trick or treat for candy.

   On Saturday, October 28, student groups NHS and KEY club put on an annual haunted house and Trick or Treat street for everyone in the community who is eager to indulge in the spirit of the creepy holiday. Each year, the event serves as a convenient way for mountain residents to trick or treat without having to walk for miles from house to house.

  “Especially for us in Conifer, it’s easier to come to one general place to get candy instead of driving your kids around for hours trying to get miniscule amounts,” junior Gian Meyer said. “We played games with some kids and that way they could get candy and also enjoy themselves, just walking around, asking people for candy.”

   The event also served as a way for juniors and seniors to obtain volunteer hours as well as to help out the community. At the same time, the event showed younger kids that Conifer can be a welcoming and fun place.

   “A lot of the time, people are like, ‘Oh god, it’s a high school’ and worry that they’ll get mugged or something since high schoolers don’t have a good reputation,” senior Skylar Matthews, KEY club member, said. “So I think it’s a good chance to give [kids] an opportunity to come see that we’re more than that and we can have this fun event.”
