On Saturday, October 26th, an estimated 9,000 people attended Sahuarita’s second annual Spooktacular Festival. With 80 cars decorated in various themes and settings for a “Trunk or Treat” area, 10 vendor activity booths, food, live entertainment, and a “Zombie High” Haunted House, this ‘small town event’ showed itself to be a true regional celebration.

Key partners such as the Town of Sahuarita, Rural/Metro Fire Department, Common Ground Church, and Rancho Sahuarita, worked to bring each aspect of the event to fruition. Highlights included a contest for the best “trunk” theme, which was judged by various members of the community for qualities like ‘Creativity’ and ‘Spirit of the Holiday’. Rural/Metro Fire Department’s work on the Haunted House, done in collaboration with local students at the Sahuarita Unified School District, proved to be a huge success; as families waited patiently in line for their turn at the fun. Finally, everyone was delighted with the DJ’s non-stop entertainment, which kept children dancing for hours.

The event, which was brought back again after its first year in 2012, has already become a favorite of residents of the Town of Sahuarita, and promises to continue far into the future as a truly original tradition. It is a real display of what can be accomplished when multiple parties come together in cooperation, and work together for the greater good of the community and its residents.
