Athletes to Hold Halloween "Boo-Zar" on Sunday

BATON ROUGE — The eighth annual LSU Halloween Boo-Zar, a trick-or-treat afternoon for kids featuring LSU athletes from all sports, will be held Sunday, October 26 from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Maravich Assembly Center.

This year’s LSU Halloween Boo-Zar will be held in conjunction with an athletic event as the Tiger volleyball will host Tennessee at 1:30 p.m. at the Maravich Assembly Center with the Boo-Zar to follow.

Baton Rouge area families are invited to the Maravich Assembly Center to enjoy a safe afternoon of Halloween fun with their favorite LSU athletes. Children are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes. Last year, over 500 children and 100 LSU student-athletes participated in the Boo-Zar.

The annual LSU Halloween Boo-Zar is sponsored by the CHAMPS program in the LSU Athletic Department. CHAMPS is an acronym for Challenging Athletes Minds for Personal Success. It is a program that includes community service projects that is organized and participated in by the student-athletes.

The Halloween Boo-Zar is free and it’s open to the public.

The Boo-Zar also kicks off CHAMPS’ Thanksgiving Food Drive. Families attending the Boo-Zar are asked to donate canned goods. Adults who bring a food donation to the volleyball game will be admitted for $3 and kids in costume for $1.
