Scottsdale residents to fall into Halloween fun

October 18, 2013 by  

Scottsdale families are invited to attend an annual Halloween celebration on the grounds of a local recreational complex.

During the last weekend in October, the baseball field outside the city’s Eldorado Aquatic and Fitness Center will be transformed into the site of this year’s Fall Festival. Professional printing services may be in higher demand as the planners of this spooky, candy-filled event work to recruit attendees through the distribution of promotional posters and flyers.

The festival will offer entertainment for visitors of all ages. Adults and children alike will be able to explore a haunted forest and win sweet treats and other prizes at several game booths. The event’s youngest visitors will enjoy playing Halloween-themed games in a separate area of their own. The evening will also include an autumn fireworks display.

The event will feature costume contests for families and youngsters between the ages of seven and 17. Attendees will be welcome to bring their leashed dogs to the festivities, and canines of all sizes will be eligible to participate in a costume competition of their own.

Visitors will also have a chance to take part in a pumpkin carving contest. Judges will evaluate entries on the basis of their creativity, scariness, and overall appeal. Entries will need to be submitted by 7:00 pm on the evening of the festival.

The event will take place on Saturday, October 26 at 2301 North Miller Road, running from 5:00 pm until approximately 10:00 pm. There will be no charge to attend.
