Boardman High School art club members turned into frightful creatures for a couple of weekends in October for the annual Witch Walk.
The event is similar to a haunted house, said club president David Sciortino, but takes place in the halls of the high school.
Art club members dress up in scary costumes, such as zombies and crazy clowns.
Norman Chapman, a junior, dressed as a Victorian cyborg. At the Oct. 26 event he said he was ready to scare people as they walked through the halls.
Frances Clause, Destiny Odom and Francesca Clause, all juniors, dressed as manic clowns.
The three participate annually and said it’s fun.
After walking the spooky halls, refreshments and face painting are available.
“It’s a pretty good time for a family,” Sciortino said. “It’s mostly little kids that come through.”
The event is typically offered the second and third weekends in October. The cost is $2 per person. Funds raised benefit the art club. They use the money for field trips, workshops, museum admissions and similar activities, Sciortino said.
