Halloween Haunts for Children

Los Angeles Children's Halloween Haunts: Harvest Festivals, Pumpkin Patches, Trick-or-Treating, Costume Parties & More

Spooky Haunted House: Los Angeles Children's Halloween HauntsLooking for Los Angeles Children's Halloween Haunts? Los Angeles offers many kid-safe seasonal events. Some are "lights-on" versions of scary night-time haunted house attractions; others are special afternoon or one-day presentations that take place in year-round facilities such as zoos and wildlife stations. Also, many Los Angeles neighborhoods get so far into the seasonal spirit that they appeal not only to local kids but also to outside families, who come to enjoy the decorated yard haunt displays and trick-or-treating opportunities.

NOTE: The Los Angeles Children's Halloween Haunts listed on this page are specifically for young trick-or-treaters. However, there are many family-friendly Los Angeles Halloween events and activities that appeal to a wider age-range, from older children to teens to families:

  • There are Halloween Festivals and Fairs, usually local events, that are designed for neighborhood families with children.
  •  Los Angeles Halloween Home Haunts are a great way to enjoy the holiday with your children. Most are safe for kids, especially if they are simply yard haunts, without a walk-through maze or actors portraying monsters.
  • The Los Angeles Department of Parks and Recreation offers Halloween events at several of their centers around town. Check their website for info.
  • Halloween Mazes and Rides frequently present family-friendly matinees on weekend afternoons. Unfortunately, these will usually not be available on Halloween Night.
  • We often add last-minute listings of Los Angeles Children's Halloween events to our news listings on the home page or to our calendar. There you will find one-shot events that do not show up on this page, which features annual recurring events.
