Bank account busted by expensive Halloween events and attractions? Visit the many free Halloween Home Haunts in Los Angeles!

Los Angeles Halloween Home Haunts house blinking eyesHalloween in Los Angeles is a special time, when horror enthusiasts create elaborate yard displays in order to terrify appreciative trick-or-treaters just for the love of doing it. These amateur efforts are typically decorated to resemble graveyards and/or haunted houses. Some offer walk-through mazes. A few feature elaborate mechanical and visual effects, timed with audio and music to create self-contained shows.

Although we refer to Halloween Home Haunts as “amateur attractions” (because they are non-profit), some feature professional-quality makeup, sets, costumes, and special effects. Home Haunts with live actors tend to be open on select nights, usually weekends and Halloween. Decorated yards often run nightly, sometimes starting by mid-month or even earlier.

Almost all Halloween Home Haunts are free and open to the public. Some accept donations, either to off-set their costs or to benefit local charities.

Below are articles and listings about Los Angeles Home Haunts and neighborhood trick-or-treating opportunities.

Best Halloween Home Haunts & Yard Haunts

Some Halloween Home Haunts rank among the Best Halloween Attractions in Los Angeles. The list below includes haunts with an established reputation for quality.
