Visit Wilshire Park if you dare Sat., Oct. 29 from 4 to 8:30 p.m. when zombies walk the streets and guests can take a ride on the “Kramer Ghost Train” at the Wilshire Park Association’s Halloween Haunt. The event is on Bronson Ave. between Wilshire and 8th.
The seventh annual haunt morphed from a simple front-yard get-together into the group’s major social and fundraising event, says haunt chair Lorna Hennington. The WSA neighborhood and Historic Preservation Overlay Zone is bordered by Wilshire, Crenshaw, Olympic and Wilton.
Festivities include old favorites and sure-to-be new ones, including D’See’s Candy Haunted House, a Nightmare Shop and the Kramer Ghost Train. Guests can visit a fortune teller, have their faces painted, swat a piñata, and enjoy bouncers and a dance party. There will also be a silent auction, carnival games, food, chili cookoff and costume contests.
Scheduled guests include police, firefighters and representatives from Congressman Becerra and Councilman Ryu’s offices. Other than food and the Ghost Train, most activities are free.
