During the month of October, Opportunity Village will be hosting their first annual HallOVeen at the Magical Forest. Local residents are very familiar with the Magical Forest which opens during the Christmas season with its gingerbread display, decorated trees and millions of holiday lights. Now Southern Nevadans can enjoy a “spookier” event as Opportunity Village will transform the Magical Forest into a supernatural good time. Guests can ride on the Spooktacular Forest Express Train, take a spin on the Enchanted Carousel and slide down the Slightly Scary Snowflake Slide. There will be a monster parade, a pumpkin patch, photo ops with “barely-scary” characters and yummy treats. This event is definitely family-friendly and children of all ages are welcome.
