"Trick or treat" will be the chant of choice as children run amuck at Fraternity Row with the hopes of filling their bags full of delicious candy.
The Interfraternity Council will sponsor its third-annual Trick-or-Treat on Greek Street today at 5:30 p.m., for children in the Boys & Girls Club.
Josh Fahey, public relations chairman for the IFC, said that IFC and Panhellenic hope to increase community outreach.
"The Greek community wanted to do something that everyone could be involved with," Fahey said.
A total of 11 fraternities will participate in this year's event on Fraternity Row. Children from the Caswell Boys & Girls Clubs will begin their trek at the Phi Kappa Psi house and end up at the Lambda Chi Alpha house.
Fahey said he hopes to have between 20 and 30 fraternity members at each house to help run carnival-type booths and games for the kids when they have finished going from door-to-door.
"One year there was a guy who put on a mask and hid in a corner over the doorway of a house," Fahey said. "He would jump out at the trick-or-treaters when they came by."
Each year a different Boys & Girls Club is invited to participate in the event. Approximately 80 children will be taking part in this year's festivities.
