Events we all enjoyed last year

October 2017

October is always the HVL Children’s Committee’s busiest month. In addition to the 8 other events we host every year, our two largest events fall in this month.

2017 Haunted Hayride

2017 Hidden Valley Lake Haunted Hayride Scarers
2017 Haunted Hayride Scarers

The turnout for the Haunted Hayride is always large, and this year was no exception. We accommodated about 1200 riders between 5 – 11pm!  This event gets rave reviews, but requires much effort and coordination. If it weren’t for the following people who all VOLUNTEER their time (none of us are paid to do this), it wouldn’t happen:


Jay Muffett (who also donated a trailer)
Nate Turner (who also donated a trailer)
Guy Shybly (who also donated a trailer)
Allen Meyer
Tim Kleier
Matt Paul
Andrew (sorry, don’t know his last name!)


Bryant Dold (B&B Scapes) – donated 2 trailers
Casey Knigga – donated a trailer
Dave Hafner – donated a trailer

Residents scaring along the route

This year we had more residents than ever put a LOT of effort into decorating and/or scaring along the route. These are the ones we know of, but I am sure we missed others (sorry for not mentioning you!).

John Sterwerf, David and Michelle Wilhelm, Kathie Smid, Darlene Zacarias, Cathy Stevens, Jamaine Smith, Steve and Denice Siereveld, Shandy Stath, Carrie Brewer, Theresa Reddell, Chris Knosp, Amy Delp, Phil Dunham, Tina Minnick, Phil and Elaine Heit, Pennie Shuler, Brandon Cable, Kristen Day, Robert Montazemi, Kim Lewis, and Justin Egan.

2017 Halloween Walk

2017 Halloween Walk

It wasn’t the best day weather-wise for the annual Halloween Walk. Still, about 300 kids and their families braved the cold for a chance to show off their costumes and get some Halloween treats. Kids age 10 and under were invited to collect candy and other goodies from 50 stations along Longview Drive.  And as a special surprise – Rosie Red and Gapper joined in on the fun!

We had a great time and hope everyone else did too!

Thank you so much to Paige Wurtz for helping organize the event, and to all the residents on Longview, the Bright Fire Department, Little Red Academy, Linda Rasp and family, Linda Miller and family, Ashley and Darryl Howe, all the other volunteers who passed out candy!

2017 Santa’s Workshop 

We had a wonderful turn out this year and Santa was overwhelmed with the wonderful kids we have in our community.

Great Gifts were made, wonderful ornaments were created and some Christmas Cards all will remember.

Thanks to all our wonderful volunteers for their effort in making this another simply fantastic Santa’s Workshop
