Kari Hunter

Get a good taste of what Fall is about at the upcoming Harvest Festival at Central Arizona College Maricopa Campus on October 26 from 5– 9 p.m.

There are many free activities for the entire family to get into that spook-tacular Halloween spirit, including:

Costume Contests – Your costumes can win prizes in any of the following categories: Most Scary, Most Creative, Most Funny, Cute Costume, and Best Homemade Costume. Each category will have one winner for the Grand Prize of an Ultrastar Multi-tainment Play Pack, valued at $150 each. Don’t be late, the judging will begin at 7 pm!

Pumpkin Patch & Decorating Station – CAC will provide free pumpkins and decorating supplies, so you can take the Harvest Festival spirit home with you.

Face Painting – The Maricopa Arts Council will provide talented artists that can professionally paint your face, so you can be anything your heart desires for the night.

Photo Booth – Capture the night with your family and friends in your face paint creation with free prints.

Escape Rooms – Never tried an Escape Room? Here is your chance. Free tickets are available but be aware: each ticket states the specific time of your challenge. You have 10 minutes to escape the room. Are you up to the challenge?

Movie Showing – CAC will be showing Hocus Pocus at two different times: at 5:15 pm and 7:30 pm. Make sure to grab free popcorn to enjoy this classic Halloween film.

2nd Annual Haunted House: Tracks of Terror – The dead are among us! You can enter at two different times. For ages 8 and under, it begins at 5 pm – 6 pm, and it will get even creepier as the night continues for ages 9 and up from 7 – 9 pm.

Food Trucks – Maricopa’s famous food trucks SVGK, The Secret Ingredient, and Coffee Run will be at this event. Make sure you bring your own money to enjoy some bites to eat.

Fans of horror, crafts, and fun are welcome to visit Maricopa Campus to enjoy this night with family and friends.
