A free family event: Safe Haven Trick or Treating at the Mesa Market Place Swap Meet!

Bring all your ghosts and goblins in costume and let then trick or treat their way through 1600 booths starting at the Food Court! Trick or Treaters will enjoy contests, surprises and treats throughout the day.

Entertainers Mary Jo and Linda Keith will be in the Food Court creating fun for Trick or Treaters and parents, alike. They’ll deliver music, dancing, free goody bags, contests from 9:30 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.

Merchants join in the festivities, too, by offering up candy, treats, toys, and even light wands! “We have 900 merchants stocking 1600 shop spaces! I think this is the biggest daylight trick or treat event in the state of Arizona,” said Joan Wells, Market Place event organizer.

Both young people and their parents are also invited to color pictures and write notes to be included in Care Packages destined to go to Armed Forces personnel stationed in the Middle East. Packages From Home ( sends out thousands of Care Packages annually, and insists that each package has a handwritten note or colored picture inside.
