More than two hundred students attended the second annual Fall Festival, said Libby Fatta, event coordinator.

There was a hot dog social at the Montoya campus festival which drew in quite a bit of students, Fatta said.

A local CNM band, Team ITS, performed at the Montoya and Westside festivals, Fatta said.

Their presence added a lively feel to the event, she said.

The Main campus event included a haunted maze presented by a team from the Veteran’s Resource Center and the Executive Council of Students, Fatta said.

“I was really scared,” she said.
