The ghoulishly adorned distance markers -- and the costumes worn by participants and onlookers alike -- helped punctuate the Halloween theme. In costume from left to right: Shannon Fitch, a BME sophomore; Marisa Caiola, a sophomore in psychology and Spanish; and William Green, a MechE junior. Fitch said the e-social was an opportunity to "watch the cannons and show off our costumes."
