Fall means warm clothes, pumpkin-flavored treats, Halloween candy and Oktoberfest.

Oktoberfest is a celebration that started in the early 1800s in Germany.

The office of student life is sponsoring an Oktoberfest celebration 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Thursday in the mall.

Coordinator of student success Jacob-Aidan Martinez, said 15 clubs and organizations will sell food and drinks or sponsor activities.

The day of Oktoberfest, the office of student life will pass out pumpkins for a pumpkin-carving contest Oct. 31.

Pumpkins should be decorated and finished before arriving at the contest. Students must turn in the pumpkins by 3 p.m. Oct. 30 in the craft room of Loftin Student Center. Winners will be announced at the Halloween costume contest 1 p.m.-2 p.m. Oct. 31 in the Fiesta Room of Loftin Student Center.

Attendees are welcome to come in costume.

Martinez said about 100 ball caps and beanies will be airbrushed for free on a first come, first-served basis. Students with a student ID can spin a wheel for Halloween-themed prizes.

All activities are free. Food and beverages are sold as club fundraisers.
