The Fermilab Student and Postdoc Association hosted their annual Halloween party on Friday evening, Oct. 28, at the Kuhn Barn.
Global Services organized a family-friendly beginning to the evening, which saw a peak of over 100 people at the event, with many of them dressed in a whole range of terrifying costumes.
The party was gatecrashed by Link (Zelda) asking for friends to help fight Ganon, where he chose a rather saucy-looking policewoman, a painting of Vincent van Gogh, and Chase from Paw Patrol to help him in his quest.
Following this there was a musical interlude, as STOOL (a band composed of scientists at Fermilab) performing as The Mad Scientists, played a 30-minute set for the attendees.
The night concluded with a pumpkin carving competition, during which one young Pokemon fan made a frighteningly accurate representation of Gengar, before everyone relived a scene from Castaway and depicted some beloved pets, which have been left at home with family.
All in all, it was an incredibly successful event, and the FSPA officers are looking forward to hosting their next event soon!
