The founders of this family fun event, Kim & Janna, say they  “started this event to create the fun of Halloween that they remembered as children”, . Kim said,  “the carnivals with games  were so much fun”. Janna remembers “living in a large neighbor in Michigan where it was safe to walk to 50 different places to get candy. Sometimes the people in the homes would make you sing a song or tell a joke for the candy. It was always FUN”.
