Our Favorite Safe & Spooky Halloween Events in LA
Halloween looks a bit different this year but it doesn’t mean we still can’t enjoy the spookiest day in the calendar. We’ve rounded up our favorite safe and spooky halloween events in the city from hay mazes to scavenger hunts to free donuts! Have fun!
Take the family on a spooky (but not scary) drive-through at Haunt’oween LA in Woodland Hills. Suitable for all ages, the experience features photo ops, a jack-o’-lantern tunnel, ‘door to door’ trick or treating with costumed actors and a pumpkin patch for picking your own pumpkin to take home, all from the safety of your vehicle. Tickets are $70 per car.
