Halloween 2013!

It’s Halloween, in case you hadn’t realized. One of the few times a year we have a legitimate excuse to eat candy (to make sure those poor kids don’t eat too much of course).

Be safe and be creative, and if you can manage it, try to scare the snot out of someone.

Now here’s a picture I came across of some ghosts:

Alfonso’s Breakaway Glass, Inc.

2Q==Think about those old Westerns when a bottle or a chair was smashed over some guy’s head in a bar fight. Ouch! Well, there are no concussions and cuts with Alfonso’s Breakaway Glass. Bottles, glasses, vases, lab items, dishes, light bulbs—you’ll find it all at Alfonso’s. They also make custom breakaway windshields, mirrors and large-size glass.

Their list of credits is impressive, a testament to the quality of their breakaways. There’s on online catalog to peruse. But before you do that, check out Alfonso’s trailer.

Los Angeles Haunted Hayride – Greco Decor

Z-1Don’t go into the woods tonight unless you’re on the Tractor Ride at the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride. Greco Décor Prop & Event Rentals has once again raised the bar along with raising the dead with many of his props being used (and fabricated for) a hayride through the old zoo area at Griffith Park.

Their tractor ride through the woods is a scary treat filled with live goulish ghosts and monsters, plastic and jarred bodies, along with all manner of creepy things grabbing at you as you creak through the trees passed graveyards and other fun “hauntery“.

9k=Along with the ride you can go through the corn field of terror as well as check out their “Boo”-tique shop. In another direction were ghastly photo op areas, perfect for your yearly Christmas card  with complete set ups including electric chairs, saws, and body parts. My favorite side attraction, however, was the Scary Go Round.

Located in Griffith Park at the Old Zoo Area, past the Ranger Station, you will find this attraction. It’s still going on so see if you can make it!
