Can't Miss: Family Weekend/Barktoberfest!

by Emily Kipp 

Family Weekend is only a few days away and with the beautiful fall weather we've been having, there is no excuse for anyone to miss out on the great events coming up.  


On Friday, CAN will be hosting a Halloween Event in Caine from 6:00 - 8:00pm with a showing of the movie Monsters University directly after. If animated movies aren't your thing, at 8:00pm, there will also be a theatre production in Dawson titled "Anything Goes." (Check out a post coming soon about the upcoming show!) 

Friday evening will also host a planetarium show, Flight Adventures, in Peelle Hall starting at 7:00 pm.

Saturday's festivities start early with a scavenger hunt beginning at 11:00 am in the Merillat. From 11:00 am - 4:00 pm, there will be a shuttle leaving the Merillat parking lot going to Carpenter Farms for a corn maze, hay rides and pumpkin decorating fun, followed by a Halloween Carnival from 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm.  

Before the football game at 5:00 pm (against the Olivet College Comets), make sure to stop by Barktoberfest -- AC's annual pre-football game tailgating extravaganza. Think mini-homecoming with this event: there will be a cannot-miss pumpkin and apple pie baking contest, petting zoo, dog/owner dress up contest and more!

The weekend wraps up on Sunday with a family worship service in the chapel at 11:00 am and an open public skate from noon - 2:00 pm.
