Valley Of The Moon Show Kicks Butt (With Kindness)

I guarantee that if you don't get to the Valley of the Moon Halloween show, with or without a child by your side, you will wake up Sunday feeling like a soulless schlub ... really, you will wake up feeling sad, and the sight of the soon=to-be-rotting pumpkin on your porch will only make you feel worse.

Why? Because this is the best Valley of the Moon Halloween show I have seen in three seasons. I don't know if it's the presence of the Lee Koplin statues from Magic Carpet that now share space with George Phar Legler's 1920s fantasy land of sprites and gnomes, but it is Valley of the Moon at its best.

Volunteers have done a great job of cleaning up the grounds and making the Magic Carpet statues fit in with Legler's space.

You have tonight and tomorrow. Don't forget that magic stone the tour guide hands out at the beginning—you're going to need it.

From Valley of the Moon:

"13 Nights of Halloween - Magic Carpet Chaos at The Haunted Ruins"
The Evil One has returned and his minions are trying to hijack the new Magic Carpet Land from the Genie. Return to the land of Fairy and embark on a mystical adventure armed with nothing more than your Magic Stone to help protect Valley of the Moon from the forces of evil. Support historic fantasyland Valley of the Moon at its annual Halloween fundraiser.

Come enjoy the debut of Tucson's largest collection of preserved statues from the former Magic Carpet Golf.

* This year's fundraiser will also have snacks available for purchase from Moondog's hotdogs and Kettlecorn *

Shows are 6:30 to 9 p.m. Tours leave the gate every 30 minutes.

Adults: $7

Children 7-13: $5

Free admission for children under 7
