Once per year, we unlock and unleash the full chills and thrills of Halloween on Laughlin Air Force Base. Our ghoulish team invites every little wizard, superhero, goblin and creepy little creature to join us for a night of Spooktacular treats! There's loads of frightful fun for everyone!

Trunk Or Treat

This year: Get out of the car and into our trunks!

Bring a bag big enough for all the fun you and the kids will have!

Civilian Career
Laughlin 47FSS @ Dole Center Parking Lot

We're keeping it safe so you and the kiddos can enjoy a stroll from station to station picking up goodies, treats and maybe even a few tricks!

There will also be carnival games, a hayrack ride and food trucks to keep the hungry little monsters happy.

We're also inviting groups to sign up to have a trunk in the Trunk-or-Treat portion of the Spooktacular at the Library. There will be prizes awarded to the top four decorated trunks.

Community Center @ Dole Center Parking Lot

Whether spooky, silly or creative, we want to see what you can do with a pumpkin! Get ready to squash the competition!

You bring the talent, we'll bring the tools! Whatever design you like, all you have to do is make a Great Pumpkin and you could win a prize!

Kids are invited to join in the fun at a decorating station just for them! This family-friendly event will have you all out of your gourds!

And if you're feeling a little rusty, get some pre-Spooktacular practice in at Arts & Crafts' Pumpkin Carving event on Oct. 25.
