Kids of all ages converged onto Montrose for the Montrose Shopping Park Association’s (MSPA) annual Spooktacular on Halloween. The Spooktacular is a trick-or-treating event held by the MSPA every year that encourages local residents to visit the area while giving their children a safe environment to collect candy.

The 2200, 2300 and 2400 blocks of Honolulu Avenue were closed to make room for the trick-or-treaters. At 5 p.m. ghosts and ghouls – not to mention a few other ghastly revelers – filled the streets.

Children got to enjoy the bounce houses and face painters just as much as the sweets.

Even Halloweeners of the four-legged kind found a place at the Spooktacular courtesy of Andersen’s Pet Shop Howloween Pet Parade.

Aside from the Tootsie Rolls, Kisses, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, and the usual Halloween sweet fare, food booths served, among other things, lemonade and hot dogs.

The event was peaceful with no unusual disturbances or incidents reported by the Glendale Police Department.

Haunted Houses

Haunted Houses   By Charly SHELTON  Halloween brought ghosts and goblins out to socialize with the living for one night only all across the Crescenta Valley with haunted houses built by local residents. The Nightmare on Vista Court haunted house veterans have moved the show down into Whiting Woods for a spook house that was just as scary as ever.   The house was set up so visitors felt like they were walking through a graveyard while weeping angels stood nearby with some popping to life.   At Crescenta Valley Park, the inaugural haunted asylum was in full swing with severed heads, boiling children and mad doctors.

Pumpkin ‘Snowman’

Trick-or-treaters may have been confused when visiting the Fairshter home on Halloween. Greeting little goblins was a pumpkin-man fashioned after a snowman. Dreaming of an orange Christmas or a white Halloween?
