Camp Verde Halloween Trunk or Treat Planning
Oct 31 @ 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Camp Verde Parks & Recreation announces advance planning for our annual Main Street Trunk or Treat Halloween Festival. The popular event will be on Saturday, October 31 this year from 4:00 – 7:00 pm. Main Street will be closed down from ACE Hardware to the Camp Verde Feed Store to allow for a safe environment for families to enjoy the activities. We will also be expanding the footprint of the event to include Community Center Field and the grassy areas of the Town Complex to allow for more spacing between participants handing out candy and for the Trick or Treaters to spread out while wandering around collecting candy. Last year saw a crowd estimated at over 3,000 kids and parents! Businesses, organizations and individuals passed out tons of candy to costumed children strolling the street. Parks & Recreation takes the lead in providing candy for this event by accepting donated funds along with Town funds and then purchasing candy to be parceled out for distribution. Groups with funds to donate are asked to contact Parks & Recreation as soon as possible. They also coordinate placement of booths and cars along the route to maximize social distancing. We realize that the COVID pandemic has affected so many things, and we are continuing to work on ways to make the event as safe as possible for all who participate. Please know that we plan on having the event, but we have all learned that things may change between now and then that are out of our control.

In addition to costumed candy gobbling, businesses and groups are invited to organize other activities. These might include a haunted house, musical entertainment or food. AZ Central Land Realty will be doing their Halloween decoration extravaganza and there will be plenty of other decorated businesses and cars. Calvary Chapel, Lions Club and the Kiwanis Club of Camp Verde are just some of the community groups that we expect will be joining us for this event. This is an opportunity for businesses and organizations to participate in a fun community event. Does your business have a piece of big equipment that would look great decorated up? Do you have an employee who can walk Main Street on big stilts? Have a neighbor who juggles? This is the chance to use your imagination and add a little bit more and create a great family festival. Individuals, organizations or businesses that would like to participate in some way are encouraged to contact Shawna Figy at Camp Verde Parks and Recreation (928)554-0829 or [email protected] to discuss possibilities.

Clarkdale Changes Up Halloween
Oct 31 @ 9:39 pm

The Town of Clarkdale typically hosts the “Safe Trick or Treating” event on Halloween each and every year with more than 1,500 trick-or-treaters and their families visiting the streets of upper Clarkdale.

Due to COVID 19 and public health and safety concerns for the children and their families, the Town will not hold its annual Halloween event as usual this year.  In an attempt to keep the Halloween spirit alive, the Town will instead do the following:

Decorate Town Park gazebo- Town staff, along with the help of volunteers, will decorate the Town Park and gazebo with festive Halloween decorations, thanks to sponsor State Farm Agent Jennifer Griffin.

Best Halloween House Decorating Competition –Clarkdale residents will compete for the best decorated home. Entries will be posted online for the public to vote for a People’s Choice winner and judges will choose the First-Place winner.

Virtual Children’s Costume Contest – Clarkdale’s traditional costume contest takes on a new look this year. Verde Valley children will compete for the best costume in their age group. Entries will be accepted online through the Town’s Facebook page.

If you would like to contribute to Halloween 2020 or sponsor the Halloween House Competition or the Children’s Costume Contest, here is how you can donate:

-Drop off at the Town Administration Building at 39 N. 9th Street in Clarkdale

-Mail to: Town of Clarkdale, Attn: Parks & Recreation, P.O. Box 308, Clarkdale, AZ 86324

For planning purposes, donations would be appreciated by September 12th.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Parks & Recreation Department at 928-639-2460 or by email: [email protected]
