Residents enjoy tricks, treats at Rhodes Ranch
Nov. 11, 2007 Las Vegas Review-Journal
Hayrides, a scary Full Moon Café, and plenty of tricks and treats lured the residents of Rhodes Ranch to the annual Halloween event which took place at The R-Club Recreation Center within the master-planned community.
"This is the second year we put on this event and the turnout was phenomenal," said Virginia Kaplan, program director for The R-Club.
"I think many of the residents who attended last year encouraged others to come this year. It is such an amazing event and a safe way for families to participate in this holiday."
Residents were able to enjoy hayrides, face painting and pumpkin decorating. There was also a palm reader and a balloon-twisting witch as well as a performance by the Las Vegas City Artz Academy.
"We had several contests during the evening as well. There was one for the best decorated pumpkin, the best and scariest costumes and guessing the weight of a large pumpkin that we bought. We tried to offer many options to appeal to everyone involved," Kaplan said.
"We really enjoy putting on these events for the residents and especially seeing the excited faces of the children as they participate in the various activities offered. I am already looking forward to next year's event and ways to make it even more exciting."
