Halloween is coming up and the City of Apache Junction Parks and Recreation wants to make your night spook-tacular! We will be hosting our annual Halloween Festival from 5 p.m.-8 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 28. The event will take place at Flatiron Park, 100 N. Apache Trail. This event is free to the community.
The 15th Annual G.A.I.N. (Getting Arizona Involved in Neighborhoods) Event will be held in conjunction with the festival and is presented by the Apache Junction Police Department. Citizens throughout Apache Junction are invited to join in the festivities designed to bring neighbors together, strengthen police and community relations, and support citizens of Apache Junction who make it a safer place to live.
There will be activities throughout the night for the whole family, including a costume contest, pumpkin carving contest, bounce houses, fun kid’s games, emergency vehicle display, safety information with Apache Junction Police Department, and the Howl-o-ween Canine Costume Contest!
The Annual Costume Contest will begin at 6pm sharp and will be divided by ages. All ages are welcome to enter. Remember to use your imagination and be creative! All participants will be required to fill out a registration form prior to the contest.
Do you or your family like to carve pumpkins for Halloween? If so, bring your pre-carved pumpkin out to the park and enter our Pumpkin Carving Contest! Entries will be judged by kids and adults! All pumpkins must be submitted to the judging table by 6:00pm to be eligible to win. Winners will be announced after the conclusion of the Costume Contest.
Enter your dog in our Howl-o-ween Canine Costume Contest! All canines must be on a leash and have a completed entry form. This contest will begin at 7 p.m. Categories include: Cutest , Funniest, Most Original and Best Group (dog & owner).
