Here's an event starting this weekend that's really good. Anybody else got some Halloween events taking place in Arizona?

DARE TO BE SCARED
Old Tucson's Nightfall explores dark side with fights, blazing stunts
LINDSEY HOSHAW
Published: 09.27.2007

DARE TO BE SCARED | www.tucsoncitizen.com ®

The show, which begins Saturday and culminates in a final "bloodletting" Oct. 31, includes five live-action shows, three walk-through "haunted adventures" and a nightmarish train ride. And if that's not enough, cast members will roam the dusty streets of Old Tucson looking to scare unsuspecting visitors. (Hint: Beware of those masked creatures behind you).

The main attraction, The Darkness Rising Stunt Show, depicts Dr. Hyde and his dangerous decision to resurrect Kain, the Vampire King. As Kain re-emerges, things quickly get out of hand and the two fight to the death in a dramatic showdown. "This is a caliber of spookiness that hasn't been seen out here in a while," Kadrow says. "We've doubled the scary factor - there's a lot more action, and more stunts."

The Darkness Rising Stunt Show incorporates more than 30 pyrotechnic explosions and a 35-foot fall taken by a stuntman on fire.

"The pyrotechnics are incredible," says Michael Moore, who plays Kain. "It's scarier than anything else I've done."

Any one with children I recommend taking them to Schnepf Farms in Queen Creek. Every year they have a great set up. Carnival rides, train ride through a haunted orchard, good food, and fireworks display at the end. Kids can find their pumpkin from the patch. Thursday nights are good but you can go on weekends. I forget the cost, but they always have a nice crowd with ample parking.

We had the best Halloween in 30 years last year. We must have had over 100 kids come to the door and the street scene was right out of a movie. Some dad in a Chicken costume was going around and a neighbor put orange lights all over his little golf cart and went around the streets. I hope we have the same street scene here this year, I can't wait.
