September 28, 2015 (El Cajon)--You’re invited to reserve Friday night, Oct. 23 from 5 to 10 p.m. to attend the 4th annual HauntFest on Main event that has become very popular with folks in East County celebrating Halloween.

This is a fun-filled family affair with plenty to do including a pumpkin patch for ‘picking’ that perfect orange decoration, two candy trails this year, an expanded carnival ride area, an LED rock climbing wall, face painting, food and drink, the famous TNT dancers, a KIDZ zone, outdoor movies on a 26- foot screen, arts and crafts booths, game booths, costume contests, live music on 2 stages, inflatables and more.

I attended last year’s HAUNTFEST and it was very crowded with happy people enjoying themselves - adults and kids alike. Many wore costumes from super cute to really frightening.

It’s a great place to mingle and have a good time, people watch, listen to music, and be safe. It gets better as dusk creeps in and the darkness slowly creates shadows which enhance the night’s festivities.

This event is sponsored by the city of El Cajon, <St. Madeleine Sophie’s Center and El Cajon business partners. For more information, visit the Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/Hauntfest-on-Main
