The “Costume Carnival” is an annual event that the Student Association holds to engage both the Mississippi State campus and the Starkville community. Families in the community are invited to bring their children to campus for a night of fun Halloween festivities. Most children wear their Halloween costumes and have the opportunity to show them off on stage during the Carnival. All MSU Student Organizations are invited to participate by setting up a booth at the Carnival. Each booth will have a fun game or activity for the children to participate in. This is a great opportunity for the campus and community to come together every year for a night of spooky, creative fun.
