Ghosts will shriek and pumpkins will grin this Saturday when the Los Encinos State Historic Park throws open its creaking gates for Haunted History, a free event hosted by the Los Encinos Docent Association.
The ghoulish fun begins at 3:00 p.m. and includes ghost stories, haunted tours, haunted harvest games, a ghostly noise contest, costumed guest ghosts, and music by the Dogtown Filharmonik.
Bring your own pumpkin and carve it up like Freddy Krueger without messing up your kitchen. There, isn't Halloween a lot more fun now?
As darkness falls, the landmark Encino park known for its tranquil duck pond will be the scene of a twilight blacksmith demonstration, and then a classic silent horror movie, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, will be screened (or as the docents say, "screamed") on the wall of the historic adobe. Bring a blanket and let the chills run down your spine.
Ooooooooo. Happy Halloween.
When: Saturday, October 26, 2013 3:00 p.m. until very dark and late and scary
Where: Los Encinos State Historic Park 16756 Moorpark Street Encino
