Halloween is a fun, spooky, creative holiday for people of all ages; even pets get in on the costume fun! With October 31st falling on a Saturday this year, there are tons of great events and activities around Arizona golf communities for both kids and adults.
MacDonalds Ranch Pumpkin Patch
Throughout October, you can explore a pumpkin patch at a real working farm in north Scottsdale. Take a hay ride, partake in some western games, wander through the petting zoo, then select the perfect pumpkin for carving. Admission is $10 Monday – Friday (closed Tuesdays) and $12 Saturday and Sunday. Wear a costume on October 30 or 31st for trick or treating at the activities and a $2 discount on tickets.
