We are starting to get chills, here on UPB, and not only because the weather is cooling down.We are getting chills, because UVM’s Fright Week is sneaking up on us faster than we can finish our pumpkin spice lattes. Fright week is chalked full of spooky Halloween events  with everything from Pumpkin Painting to Candy Shoppe.

Movie With A Bite:
Saturday, October 31

Jack o lantern

9:30PM-11:30PM | Showing Halloween Town In Brennan’s

11:30PM-12:30AM | Midnight Breakfast in Market Place

Dress Up, dress down and spend Halloween with UPB. Sweet treats, popcorn and a journey down Halloween memory lane, with a viewing of the classic film Halloweentown. Movie screening begins at 9:30PM in Brennan’s followed by a FREE midnight breakfast, served in the Market Place.

We like to think Fright Week is the best thing since Pumpkin Spice, Trick or Treating and dare I say it, Halloweentown itself. So, don’t be a scaredy cat and we will see you at our events. We know this all seems too good to be true, but it’s not a trick and we think your presence would be a treat!
