A community of “mountain monsters” who love Halloween are located near the top of Coal Creek Canyon along Camp Eden Road. They offer trick or treating to all ages, provided participants are in costume, on Oct. 31.
On All Hallows Eve from 5-8 p.m. residents open their doors and turn up the lights, welcoming more than 200 monster trick-or-treaters and giving everyone an opportunity to enjoy Halloween close to home.
The annual event, now in its 14th year, takes a lot of work, but delivers “big smiles and major tooth decay.” Trick-or-treating homes—the one’s with their lights on—are located up and adjacent to Camp Eden Rd. including Sunny Dr., Katie Ln., Aspen Dr., Linn Ln., Ronnie Rd., Happy Tr., Leon Ln., Debra Ann Rd. and more.
There are also other festivities each year, so visit the Coal Creek Canyon Monsterville website or Facebook page to keep up.
Visible costumes with warm layers underneath are highly recommended along with a bag to hold candy, flashlight and a printed out map of the Streets of Treats.
Camp Eden Drive is located about a half mile east of the Wondervu Café on Hwy. 72. On the day of the event sign will mark specific “Streets of Treats” to visit.
Event coordinators are always looking for sponsors and donations. All donations go towards the workings of the CCCMonsterville website, ads in local papers, replacement and repair of signage and other costs. Visit http://www.CCCMonsterville.com for more information.
