Gadsden State Community College is hosting Candy with the Cardinals, an event for students, faculty, staff and community members. The free public event will be from 3:30 to 7 p.m. Oct. 30 at the Beck Conference Center on the Wallace Drive Campus.
“Parents are always looking for fun, safe events for their children,” said Laura Swann, director of Enrollment Services. “Candy with the Cardinals is an opportunity for our community to come on campus and have a great time in a safe environment.”
This is the second Candy with the Cardinals at Gadsden State.
“Last year’s event was very well attended,” Swann said. “We anticipate a good crowd again this year.”
Participants are encouraged to wear costumes. The event will once again feature carnival games and activities such as face painting, witch hat toss, corn hole and more. Attendees can meet and take photos with Gadsden State athletes as well as explore Gadsden Fire Department trucks. Members of the Cardinal Foundation and the Etowah County Sheriff’s Department will also be on-site to pass out candy. Food will be available for purchase. Information about Gadsden State’s admissions process and programs will also be available at Candy with the Cardinals. New this year, the Gadsden State Show Band is scheduled to perform during the event.
“We are going to have a good time while educating our community about what all Gadsden State has to offer,” Swann said.
