Burbank Mayor Anja Reinke officially opened a haunted house
The “Nightmare at the Museum” haunt was a smashing success. Steve Ferguson, Chair of the Burbank Park, Recreation, and Community Services Board and one of the organizers, reports over 2,800 people visited this Halloween haunt on California Street in Burbank last month.
They raised more than $4,000 for the Family Service Agency of Burbank.
The team that created creatures like these is gearing up for their holiday haunt with a nightmare before Christmas theme. So the Halloween haunt will be going through a transformation over the next few weeks. We’ll let you know when it’s up and running. Also, Ferguson says the team in the process of selecting a charity for the donations of cash, toys, and canned goods.
One of the best decked out Halloween homes
Many homeowners in the Burbank and Glendale area got into the spirit of Halloween with extensive decorations and blow-up creatures. One of the best, this home near Sunset Canyon Drive and Alameda Avenue. The blow-up creatures came to life at dust. On Halloween night, an eerie fog and other special effects greeted trick or treaters at this home.
Halloween fun night at a fall festival
The fall festival in the parking lot of the Glendale Church of Christ, on Glenoaks Boulevard, has become a neighborhood tradition. The games, the trick-or-treating, the chilly cheese dogs, handmade spider balloons and more. I was doing duty at the lemonade and punch stand. Also, I could not help noticing the adults appeared to be enjoying the festival as much, if not more, than the kids.
