Over 30 local businesses and charities will be providing family game booths along the avenue. Plus business stay open for trick or treating! Booths are carnival style, and kids can win candy and toys. Local business owners get creative with the games, so you never know what you might win! Games are not only FUN but FREE to play! Plus, The Town of Fountain Hills rents the coolest bounce houses for the younger kids to “jump around”!
Outside of carnival games, what Halloween event would be complete without costume contests? 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 pm (Registration is from 5:15pm-5: 40 pm and is located in the center of the Avenue near Chase Bank). Participation is completely FREE and prizes are sponsored by local businesses.
The other contest is “Best Kids Costume”. At 6:30 pm (Registration is from 6pm-6: 20 pm) kids will strut their stuff across the stage, showing off their favorite Halloween Costumes. This contest is for youth under 18 years of age. 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 be happening on the center of the Avenue (near Chase bank) on the main stage.
As well as the costume contests, other exciting things will also be happening in the stage area. From martial arts demos, games, and Halloween music, the center of the Avenue will be “jamming” Halloween style! Plus, 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 Laire to enjoy a fun-filled haunted experience for young and old alike. The spider experience starts at 5:30 pm.
