Amateur Halloween Yard Haunt
HALLOWED HAUNTING GROUNDS DATES & HOURS: Alas, no more!
HALLOWED HAUNTING GROUNDS ADMISSION & PARKING: FREE (donations accepted)
PLEASE NOTE: The Hallowed Haunting Grounds claims that 2005 was its “Final Manifestation.” We wish them well in their future endeavors, but what will we do without them during Halloweens to come?
HALLOWED HAUNTING GROUNDS FEATURES: More spooky than scary, this amatuer haunt is an excellent place to bring young trick-or-treaters who might be scared by professional haunted mazes. No one jumps out to scare you. Basically, it’s a front yard filled with mechanical effects (moving gravestones) and projected images (ghosts rising from the ground), with some wonderfully eerie music and sound effects. You walk down the driveway, look into the house (where ghostly musicians appear and disappear at their instruments), get a glimpse into the backyard (a fog shrouded cemetery), and exit down a walkway (past a monk delivering in invocation over a well filled with strange light). You could go through the whole thing in a few minutes, but you would not see everything. In a way, it’s lucky that the place is usually crowded, forcing you to stand and wait, so that you see many things you would have missed.
HALLOWED HAUNTING GROUNDS HISTORY: This amateur neighborhood haunt lasted until its thirty-third year, and people kept coming back — because it was the best amateur haunt in the Los Angeles Area. Each year, it just grew bigger and better.
