Halloween on Vernon Street has been a beloved campus and community tradition since 1990. Each year, children from the Hartford community are invited to Vernon Street on Trinity’s campus for trick-or-treating, activities, and games hosted by the Greek-letter and cultural houses along the street. This year, around 200 children were hosted by over 100 Trinity students in an event coordinated by students in the Annual Community Service Event Staff (ACES). The energy around this year’s event reflected a long-term, pre-pandemic history. “It was a very well established event when I got here in 1996. Lots of kids knew about it,” says Joe Barber, Director of the Office of Community Service and Civic Engagement.
