Reminders: Heritage Haunt, Ghost Train, Scareview Farms this weekend

The October season is definitely heating up as the middle of October rolls around. We hope you already hit all the Halloween haunts that opened early, because several others are on their way: the Live Steamers Ghost Train at Griffith Park, the new Nightmare at Scareview Farms at the Pomona Fairgrounds, and the excellent Heritage Haunt in Newhall, which is supposed to be even bigger and better than last year.
