On Halloween, Spooktacular was held on the Quad again for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. Spooktacular was sponsored and organized by Greek Life with participation from student organizations and athletics. 

According to Albion Today the annual event welcomes the children of Albion and their families for “fun and safe trick-or-treating.”  

With over 30 stops on the Quad, children of all ages were able to grab candy and take photos.  Near the end of the event, Albion saw its first snowfall of the season. Many children and some Albion College students played in the snow as they walked the candy trail.
