Shoreline Village Halloween 2018

Overlooking Rainbow Harbor in Long Beach, Shoreline Village is a cozy waterfront shopping and dining center most of the year; however, when October rolls around, the area transforms into a spooky Halloween village with fun for the whole family.

Shoreline Village Halloween Haunt Information

Every October, Shoreline Village offers a variety of Halloween activities for the whole family: trick or treating, costume contests, games, and musical performances. Depending on how the calendar falls, these activities usually take place on the last Saturday before Halloween or on October 31 itself, but there are exceptions.

For a time, the event took place over several days, including a haunted house during the last weeks of October. Shoreline Village dropped the haunted house from its annual Halloween celebration in 2019, and the annual Zombie Crawl went on hiatus during the 2020 pandemic.

Shoreline Village resurrected their Halloween celebration in 2021 with a single-day event titled “Spooky Saturday,” including the usual kid-friendly entertainment. The Zombie Walk returned in 2022, but the haunted house seems to be permanently closed.

Note: The Long Beach Zombie Fest used to takes place in the nearby Rainbow Lagoon. Since both events included a zombie walk, it was easy to confuse them. However, the Long Beach Zombie Fest was cancelled in 2019; it emerged in new form as Haunt of Halloween in 2021.
