LONG BEACH, MS (WDAM) -

The following is a news release from The University of Southern Mississippi

The Institute for Disability Studies (IDS) at The University of Southern Mississippi will sponsor a Haunted House and Fall Carnival Oct. 28 and 31.

Held at the Technology Learning Center on the University’s Gulf Park campus in Long Beach, the event will take place Friday, Oct. 28 and Monday, Oct. 31 from 4-8 p.m. both days. Admission is free and open to the public.

Festivities at the Fall Carnival will include the Haunted House and carnival games, such as sack running, ring toss, dancing and a bounce house.

“We are excited to be hosting a fall carnival and haunted house for the second year in a row. Events such as these provide opportunities for all participants, particularly those with developmental disabilities, to step out of their comfort zones and ‘enter if they dare,’” said Dr. Rebekah Young, associate director of IDS. “We are thankful to the Mississippi Council on Developmental Disabilities for providing funding for our Project STICK, which makes these types of recreational events possible.”

Project STICK at the Institute for Disability Studies on the Gulf Park campus was established to provide inclusive recreational opportunities for those with physical, developmental and intellectual disabilities.

For more information, contact the Institute for Disability Studies on the Gulf Park campus at 228.214.3400.
