Two long-time annual events take place over a five-day span with the 27th Viking Jam at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 30, and the 21st Blue/White game at 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 3.
Both take place at Sam Carver Gymnasium on the Western Washington University campus and admission is free.
Viking Jam features the men's and women's basketball teams with roster introductions, intra-squad scrimmages, a dunk contest and a 3-point shootout. There also will be routines by the WWU cheerleaders and Hip-Hop dance team, free popcorn, as well as contests for fans and lots of prizes.
Candy will be given to children who attend dressed in Halloween costumes.
The Blue/White men's contest splits the squad of head coach Tony Dominguez between assistants Greg Meier and Bob Hofstetter.
