There are two nice Halloween events happening in Queen Creek and San Tan Valley this Saturday.

Trunk or Treat

Sat. Oct. 30, the Town of Queen Creek is hosting a "Trunk or Treat" event from 5:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. at Desert Mountain Park. The town is anticipating over 5,000 attendees at this event, which will feature fun for the whole family.

Trunk or Treat Street provides a safe place for children to trick or treat as decorated cars line the drive and pass out candy. Those looking for a fright can venture into the "Phantom Funhouse." The Bone Yard provides attendees with carnival games, vendors and food. Live entertainment will also be available on the "Stage Fright” stage. Roving entertainers will also be available to keep those in line happy and engaged.

For any dogs that want to get in on the fun, the town is also hosting a Howloween Canine Costume Contest.

San Tan Valley Halloween Decorations

There are some really nice Halloween decorations going up in neighborhoods in the area. I thought I'd share a few from the San Tan Valley area that I spied.

This family does an all out scary cemetary each year. Awesome.

And my favorite so far....
