Halloween on the Hill

Next Date

The residents of Sherman Hill will be decorating their historic homes with spooky scenes and collecting non-perishable food items for the Des Moines Area Religious Council (DMARC) Food Pantry. Halloween on the Hill has become one of the “must-do” events on Halloween night in Des Moines!

The event is FREE to all who dare to drive or walk through. However, visitors are asked to drop off a non-perishable food item at Hoyt Sherman Place to receive a map that includes the largest Halloween displays in the neighborhood.

This event is all trick, no treats! This neighborhood-wide haunted house is a great family event for all ages and a fun way to support those in need in our community. Visit the DMARC website for a list of the most needed food items.

Visitors can expect to see lots of ghosts and goblins, and historic homes which are haunted for one night only, a live Thriller performance, Freddy Kruger roaming the streets, seven foot Frankenstein, and much, much more!

Also, check out our event page on Facebook where you can share that you’re going and invite friends.
