Annual Safe Haven Trick or Treat Event @ Mesa Market Place Swap Meet
Oct 27 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Saturday, October 27, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.: 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 each get a trick or treat bag and will enjoy contests, surprises and treats throughout the day.

We’ll also have face painters here to make your costumes complete!

Entertainer Teddie Morrow and his wife, Tina, 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 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.

Merchants join in the festivities, too, by offering up candy, treats, and toys! “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 (www.packagesfromhome.org) sends out thousands of Care Packages annually, and insists that each package has a handwritten note or colored picture inside. Each artist and note-writer will get an ice cream sandwich.
