Alaska Family Services presents Halloween Hollow on Tuesday, October 31st at the Alaska State Fairgrounds. Raven Hall will be transformed into a trick or treat carnival that provides children of the Valley with a safe, warm and handicap-accessible event for Halloween.
This marvelous annual event, now in its 16th year, has become a community favorite for children and parents. Community organizations and businesses host a booth with their very own game at the Valley’s version of Halloween fun. Booths include Pumpkin Bowling, the Flame Terminator, Goblin Golfing, Balloon Delights, Mrs. Claus, the US Marines for Toys for Tots and much more.
This fun event is the kick-off fundraiser for the Mat-Su Special Santa Program. Last year, over 3,760 children from our Valley received gifts for Christmas, thanks to the community's generosity. Families in need apply and provide the Program with a wish list from every child. The Program provides not just toys, but much needed items like school supplies, personal items and winter wear.
