How to participate in the Haunt

Wilshire Park hosted its 14th Halloween Haunt on Saturday, October 28, 2023 on Bronson Avenue between Wilshire and 8th.

 

The event has morphed from a simple front-yard get-together into our major social and fundraising event. Once again, our 2023 City Council member, Katy Yaroslavsky, agreed to sponsor the street closure of the event, so that all participants will be safe from traffic.  Both Katy Yaroslavsky and her her field deputy Michelle Flores attended this year's Haunt!  Along with our local Firehouse 29 along with representatives from the LAPD's Olympic Division.

 

Every year we need your support as well. Here is how you can help:

Contact the Haunt Committee at wilshireparkhalloween@gmail.com

Donate:

  • Cash - Wilshire Park relies on this event to operate for an entire year. For the most part, the Haunt is a gift from your neighbors to our community. The food that is sold is donated by the neighbors. The bounce houses are all courtesy of our homeowners. Many homeowner go all out being gracious hosts, decorating at their own expense.

 

  • Time - We need help setting up, cleaning up, manning tables and games and just generally patrolling to answer questions and making sure that everyone is having a good time.

 

  • Food and supplies - We always need water, table cloths and so on.

Plan

Plan for the necessary street closure. Plan to have an alternative to street parking for yourself and your guests. Remember, this event benefits the entire community. For your investment of 8 hours of disruption once a year, Wilshire Park Association can afford an entire year of community services, such as general meetings, printed and online communication, required non-profit insurance, a mailbox and much more.

 

Plan to have a lot of people on the street. Try to help keep us all safe by lighting your porch lights and keeping an eye out for your neighbors' welfare. See something, say something.

Participate

Even if you can't host an event, decorate lavishly, or donate money, please come and join the party and meet your neighbors. This is probably one of the most valuable donations you can make - letting us meet you.

Come in costume! Our adults in scary makeup and clothing are a thrill for our little ones, and set the mood for a great party.  Tell your friends, invite guests, and don't forget your kids' friends and classmates.
