This Halloween hit the streets of Fountain Hills, for a Halloween carnival unlike any other! The community of Fountain Hills puts together the most “SPOOK-TACULAR” Halloween event in the entire valley! With over 10 years running, Halloween in the Hills offers fun and safety for the entire family...including your pets! Join the fun 4-8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 31 2015 as the Town of Fountain Hills will shut down the entire Avenue of the Fountains. Over 40 local businesses and charities will be providing family game booths along the avenue and businesses will be open for trick-or-treating. Booths are carnival style, and kids can win candy and toys. Games are engaging and free to play and there will also be fun bounce houses for the kids.
Sponsored by Sami Fine Jewelry and Steadfast Construction, Halloween in the Hills offers two great contests. The first contest is “Pets and Their People.” This contest is fun to watch. Every kind of animal you can imagine can be entered in the contest. From dogs, pigs, bunnies and birds, this event is very entertaining. This year, the contest starts at 5:45 p.m. (Registration starts at 5:15 p.m.). There are no entry fees and prizes are sponsored by local businesses. The other contest is “Best Kids Costume”. At 6:30 p.m. (Registration starts at 6pm) kids will strut their stuff across the stage, showing off their favorite Halloween costumes. This contest is for kids under the age of 18. From Minecraft characters to Disney princesses, you will see it all. Participation is free and prizes are sponsored by local businesses. If you are interested in participating or watching either of these costume contests, they will take place at the center of the Avenue (near Chase bank) on the main stage. In addition to costume contests, other exciting things will also be happening in the stage area. From martial arts demos, to a Zombie Thriller Dance, games, and Halloween music, the center of the Avenue will be jamming Halloween style. There will also be a Fountain Hills Fire truck candy drop! Additionally there will be lots of other free things to do. Join Charlotte… the friendly spider at Sonoran Lifestyle’s Spider Village. Venture into the Spider’s Lair to enjoy a fun filled haunted experience. The spider experience starts at 5:30 p.m. Don’t just plan on eating candy, make sure you come hungry! Eat at the carnival and support your community. Sofrita’s, The All American Grill and The Fountain Hills Noon Kiwanis will be offering delicious food and drink for purchase. Waffle Luv and Cactus Corn are also a fun addition for desert food for purchase. Buy any food or drink from food at the carnival and a portion of all of the proceeds will be donated to local charity.
