Halloween Safe Zone 2017

When the streets closed in downtown New Britain on Oct. 31, hundreds of super heroes, witches, ghosts, and their parents descended on the Downtown District for this year’s Halloween Trick or Treat Safe Zone event. The District’s annual event provides a safe, pedestrian-friendly environment for young trick-or-treaters as they visit local businesses in search of treats. CCSU President Zulma R. Toro, students, and staff joined in the festivities, handing out candy from the University’s Institute of Technology & Business Development on Main Street. As a Carnegie Foundation Community Engaged Institution, CCSU regularly participates in events and activities that encourage an ongoing exchange of ideas and resources between the University and the surrounding community.
