Spooky Halloween Ideas and Events

Spooky Halloween Ideas and Events

by cuttingadmin, October 3, 2019

Halloween’s is just around the corner, so now is the ideal time to begin thinking about turning that desert landscape into a spooky Halloween destination, complete with goblin landscape boulders.

Utilizing what you already have in your yard can make decorating more relaxed and fun for you and your family. From landscape boulders to cacti, there is a lot of potential in your yard.

Even if you don’t decorate your yard, you can attend some cool family-friendly events and admire how others have decorated. 

Chilling Decorating Ideas

You might be looking at those landscape boulders in your front yard, thinking, “How am I supposed to decorate that thing?” Easy, turn them into perches for Goblins, zombies, or any creepy characters that might lurk in your yard on a frightening night. 

If you don’t like that idea, use washable paints or chalk to turn landscaping boulders into giant “Jack-O-Lanterns.” They may not glow like actual “Jack-O-Lanterns,” but you can pick up cheap spotlights to illuminate them and draw trick-or-treaters’ attention. 

They make great props for a haunted cemetery or western ghost town with witches and ghosts flying around. Move Phoenix suggests turning your home’s archway into a scary monster or putting silhouettes in your window for a fun touch.  

If you have cacti, trees, or desert shrubbery in your yard, you now have more places to hide and hang awesome decorations. You can turn that cactus into a prickly ghost or a shadowy giant guarding your house against the wicked spirits lurking in your neighborhood. 

Hide glowing “eyes” in your bushes and trees to create the illusion of someone peeking out, or cute little pumpkins mischievously hiding in the branches with water balloons. The best part of this spooky season is that whatever you decide to do with your yard, have fun with it, and don’t be afraid to get creative. 

Family-Friendly Events

Decorating isn’t your favorite thing? Here are a few events that Visit Phoenix mentions for fun, family-friendly activities to check out. You’ve got everything from block parties to trips to the zoo. Check out the fifth annual enchanted pumpkin garden from October 19th to 27th, where you can enjoy the world of pumpkin people, listen to music, play games, and shop. 

You can also check out the Strange Garden at Desert Botanical Gardens from the 25th to the 26th, where enchanted creatures and groovy ghouls have taken over. Another fun event for you and your family is the Halloween Block Party at The Promenade in Scottsdale on October 25th. They’ll have pumpkin carving, face painting, and more.
