There are all sorts of fun Halloween Happenings taking place around the Carson Valley area at the end of October. Here are just a few to get you in the Spooky Sort of Mood!
SPOOKY STORIES AT THE LIBRARY! Tilly the Witch will be reading stories for children aged 4 and older at the Douglas County Public Library in Minden starting tonight, October 28th at 6pm. Children are welcomed in their costumes for this fun event. For more information, call 781-9841.
NEVADA DAY! That’s right, we take a state holiday to celebrate the day Nevada became a state. We used to celebrate it on October 31st, the actual day we became a state, but then children used to trick or treat on October 30th and everyone got confused. A few years ago, the last Friday in October became our “observed” Nevada Day and trick or treating still happens (depending on your area) on either the 30th or 31st. Carson City is trick or treating on the 30th, and Douglas County is trick or treating on the 31st, so for children who live in either, they can get twice the haul!
TRICK OR TREAT AT SAFETY STREET! Trick or Treat Safety Street – sponsored by the Douglas County Sheriff – will be 3-8 p.m. Oct. 31 at the CVIC Hall in Minden. There will be prizes, contests and plenty of candy from local business and merchants. The cost is a $2 cover charge for each participating child. For more information, call 782-8153.
HARVEST FESTIVAL! The Calvary Chapel’s Harvest Festival is 5 p.m. on Halloween Night at the Douglas County Fairgrounds. There will be free food, drinks, games, candy, cake walk and live entertainment. Admission is two bags of candy per family. Due to the large number of smaller children attending, non-frightening costumes encouraged. For more information, call 265-3259.
