Trail of Doom 2016 was a monster of a party. Hundreds of families haunted the Sacaton Wellness Center Oct. 27, where the Gila River Indian Community hosted a 5K run, a 2-mile walk, games, prizes, music, and a haunted house.
The Tribal Recreation Department organizes the Trail of Doom every year for costumed Community members of all ages to share in the Halloween spirit.
A line of daring souls wrapped around the Wellness Center, while shrieks could be heard from inside the haunted labyrinth.
The 5K runners picked up their Nike Trail of Doom T-shirts while sweat smeared their painted clown faces or accentuated the blood on their costumes.
Children tossed beanbags at the plastic skeletons of undead creatures at one of the game booths and pinned bowties on Mickey Mouse at another.
Well after darkness set in, the crowd took a stroll around Sacaton. The Trail of Doom proved scary for some, but fun for all.
