The Halloween Event (2010) is an event on FarmVille that started on October 13, 2010. During the event, a number of Halloween themed items were released. Also, some items were re-released from the past Halloween Event from 2009.
This article is speculation about an unreleased item which does not currently exist in FarmVille. Any information in this article must be based on facts, taken from an official Zynga source.
Halloween costumes were announced in a podcast, and then images were found in the game's database. Its been announced that it should be released sometime before Halloween 2010.

 
*** UPDATE ****10-12-10   logged into farmvile and saw..... this new scren ,, nice lookin halloween decor  I luv the mumy gnome hehe.......

 
 
 **** UPDATE *****10-11-10
Thanks to Bill, the poster of this ***zynga has a counter glitch on the candy   You are not losing Candy 
I spoke to Zygna TEch support what we discovered is a counter problem within the gift box. as your candy hits 1000 pieces it will only show the first 3 digits. for instance 1158 pieces will show only 158 don't freak out the full amount is still in there and I was told to keep collecting it. when you hit 1160 it will show 116 so the number will only change every 10 peices
if you look farther down on the replys you can find where bill posted this
 
Zynga told us all to go "trick or treating" ....... seems like zynga you gave us all a "TRICK" instead of a "TREAT" ........LOL
but zynga says candy basket wil be out next week........if that helps ya !
 ** UPDATE** ABOUT CANDY FROM ZYNGA *****  updated : on 10-8-10
 
Next week you'll be able to use the Halloween Candy so you'll be able to accept Mystery items again soon. 
from zynga :
 Howdy Trick or Treaters! We realize that some of
your gift boxes are getting chock full of Halloween Candy and
consequently you can't put anything else in there. We've just released
an update so that Halloween Candy no longer counts towards your Gift Box
limit (except in the case of Mystery items, like the Mystery Game or
Mystery Eggs--you won't be able to get those if the Gift Box is full).
Next week you'll be able to use the Halloween Candy so you'll be able to accept Mystery items again soon.

Thank you to ToddandMisty DePriest for posting this info on another GU forum here i took your info and updated this posting !!  ;-)

That scary time of the year is coming once again and we have some great Halloween treats in store for you! Today marks the release of the multi-stage buildable Haunted House and the ability for your neighbors to stop by for some Trick or Treating. Save the Candy, you'll be need it soon!

Guide:
You’ll receive the frame for your Haunted House the first time you launch FarmVille after the update and you’ll be placed immediately in Placement Mode, so you can put it down on your farm now or just store it for later use. Once you have it placed, you can begin construction.

The Haunted House has three tiers where each tier requires successively more materials to make it complete. You can check how on your progress by clicking on the Haunted House frame and selecting “Look Inside” from the options. From within the Haunted House window you can see the progress bar as well as the materials needed to finish the next tier. Each Haunted House tier has a scarily-appropriate name attached:
Eerie: 8 of Wooden Boards, Nails and Bricks [b]Frightening: 10 of Wooden Boards, Nails and Bricks[/b][b]Spine-Chilling: 12 of Wooden Boards, Nails and Bricks[/b]
Like other constructible buildings, you can acquire Wooden Boards, Nails and Bricks by having your neighbors gift them to you, through Special Delivery Boxes, or by purchase in the Market. You may even have some left over in your inventory.
Each tier of the Haunted House looks different and scarier than the previous one:

However, your new Haunted House is not just a mere decoration. This is Halloween after all! Aside from looking fearsome, you can interact with Haunted Houses in two ways:
[b]You can visit your Haunted House once every 24 hours to collect Halloween Candy. [/b][b]You can visit your neighbor’s Haunted House once every 24 hours to collect Halloween Candy. [/b]

This is the Trick or Treat part. How much Halloween Candy you receive depends on the tier of the Haunted House you’re visiting (it doesn’t matter if it’s yours or your neighbor’s):
Eerie: 1 Halloween Candy Frightening: 2 Halloween Candy Spine-Chilling: 3 Halloween Candy
So what’s Halloween Candy good for? Well we thought it’d be obvious! For now, just collect them—soon enough you’ll be able to use them for something cool. They’ll be in your Gift Box:

haunted house is cute

I dont seem to be getting all my halloween snags, says I snagged Halloween sheep & scarecrows but not showing in my inventory box on farmville, is there a fault anywhere?

Picture?type=square

I contacted Zynga last night, not only did they give me 50FV cash for my trouble, but have indicated they will replace the missing items, so im not too upset.

If you do contact Zynga, remember to be polite (even if you are really peed off) you get a lot more out of them.

Also remember not to tell them you lost over 200 items, as by all rights you wouldn't of had that many items in your gift box if you did not use the snag bar. (if you had over 200 eggs you would of had to sell enough to get the amount to 199 so you shouldn't have hoarded that many in the first place)

It would have been useful if Zynga allowed us to place the eggs and mystery gifts back onto the farm as we used to, it would have saved the issue of the missing eggs and boxes at least in the first place

PLZ. HELP ME OUT, MY HAUNTED HOUSE IS GONE OFF MY FARM AND IT WAS FULLYUPGRADE

Farmville has said that the eggs and such are only gone temporarily. They assure that they will be back. Whether they will be or not is a different story. They have also made candy to where it doesn't count towards your gift limit. we shall see.

Picture?type=square

Farmville took all my eggs too. I am so mad because they took something and didnt give nothing back we play and have fun and they do this to us. I dont think that is fair to us. If anything they should of taking the cand instead. The candy means nothing to me. The eggs were more valuable to us than those stupid candies. Also where is the basket they were suppose to give to us. They figure they can do what ever they want . People are so discusted with farm ville. Soon nobody is gonna play any more.

Thanks April for the link. I will surely go and post my complaint right away. They really should think ahead before they release stuff like this. I can't believe that nobody over "there" thought this might be a problem.

@ Laura Dugan Guntharp
I agree i liked it better when we could set are mystery eggs and mystery boxes down on the farm better than you could set them there and open them when ever you wanted to and save them for when zynga put new items in those mystery boxes !! I wish they would change back to the old way on the eggs/boxes !
I have lost all my eggs and animals out my gift box as well : (
I have emailed zynga we shall see what the responce will be :(
I say BOO Zynga give us all are stuff back and get those silly candy baskets out to us hurry .......
and i have posted over on zynga.com all my itmes gone if you are missing items go to......

Lets all FLOOD Zynga FORUMS !!!!!!!!!! Please go to zynga.com report missing items there : )

Well I seem to be in the same boat as the rest of you, which I don't if that is comforting or not, but I lost all of my eggs, mystery gifts and crates. Gone! Why can't we go back to putting them on our farm if Zynga is going to do something like this? I can't even accept my friends gifts because it says my box is to full. Well ya! Duh!!!

Picture?type=square

Maybe Zynga should have let us put our mystery boxes and eggs on our farms like we used to so we wouldn't have lost them

Ok, so not only can I not accept any gifts, I lost a ton of eggs because of that stupid candy!!! I hope this candy is worth it.

Does any1 also lost mistery eggs? I lost tons of eggs including rainbows ;(

I really like the haunted house but would love to get my candy out of my gift box because now I can't except my request now. I don't understand why they didn't give the candy basket right a way.
