With the spirit of Halloween in the air, things are starting to get a little spooky! Maricopa County wants to help the Arizona community get the ultimate Halloween experience through offering a, “Goofy Ghost Walk” at Usery Mountain Regional Park at the Nature Center on Saturday, October 17. This nighttime walk will include a guided tour through the dark desert in a quarter-mile journey.
Participants in the Ghost Walk are encouraged to decorate a bed sheet at home and wear it during the walk. The “Ghost Rangers” will hold a contest to judge the best child, teen and adult homemade bed sheet ghost costume. The Rangers will tell ghost stories around a bonfire with free snacks, drinks and fun games!
The hike requires that each walker brings a flashlight and closed-toe shoes. Any big groups are asked to call ahead and pets are not allowed on the walk. The walk will begin at 7pm and the fee is $6 per car. Usery Mountain Regional Park is located at 3939 N. Usery Pass Rd.
