Wilshire Park Association is throwing a Halloween bash Sat., Oct. 27, from 4 to 8:30 p.m. on Bronson Avenue between Wilshire Boulevard and Eighth Street.

“This is our ninth year, and the event has morphed from a simple front-yard get-together into our major social and fundraising event,” said co-chair Lorna Hennington.

The Association is also celebrating 10 years as a city Historic Preservation Overlay Zone, said Robby O’Donnell, the Halloween event’s co-chair.

Festivities at the Halloween Haunt include old favorites and soon-to-be new ones. Zombies will wander about, there is an Island of Lost Souls (after the 1932 Charles Laughton movie) and attendees can ride the (Wendy and Steve) Kramer Ghost Train.

AT LAST YEAR’S Haunt were LAPD Senior Lead Officer Harry Cho, Councilman David Ryu and event co-chair Lorna Hennington.

A fortune teller, face painting, piñata, bouncers, a dance party, silent auction and carnival games plus food, photo opportunities and costume contests are also featured.

New this year to the Haunt will be a magic show.

Wristbands at $5 will permit unlimited access to rides and games. Meal deals of $6 will be available.

The street will be blocked to traffic, and street parking is available.
