Everyone is invited to bring chairs and blankets to Dunsmore Park to join Glendale Parks and Recreation and the Historical Society of Crescenta Valley for Movie in the Park at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 23. The classic Don Knotts film, “The Ghost and Mr. Chicken” fits in with the night’s Halloween theme. Glendale Councilmember John Drayman will begin the event as guest storyteller.

The movie was originally scheduled to screen at Deukmejian Wilderness Park but has been relocated to Dunsmore Park, 4700 Dunsmore Ave. There is no charge to attend.


Glendale Parks and Recreation will be hosting a series of guided hiking tours along the city’s trail system. Each month the tours will explore a new trail. Each hike will last about one hour. Participants are asked to bring plenty of water and dress ready for the walk. Advanced registration is required as space is limited. There are two walks available, each beginning at 10 a.m. The first is on Oct. 17 at Oakmont View. Participants meet at the tennis court. On Oct. 24 is Whiting Woods. Participants meet at the end of the street. For information contact Eric Grossman, (818) 548-3795.


The Glendale Parks and Recreation campfire program continues with “Here Come the Devil Winds,” an anatomy of a Santa Ana wind. Park naturalists will discuss the phenomenon known as the Santa Ana winds and how to prepare for those windy days. This is a family-friendly program that will feature songs, skits, smiles and s’mores. The fun begins at 6 p.m. on Oct. 17 at Dunsmore Park. For information contact Russ Hauck at (818) 548-3795.
