More Haunt Listings!

Hell Shire Farms

Looking for even more Halloween events in Los Angeles? Well, we’ve got ’em! We’re adding these haunted houses to our listings for 2008: Hell Shire Farms, Dr. Uphir’s Sanitorium by Haunted Garage, and Nativity Church’s Big Top Circus. We can’t vouch for them personally, having never visited, but both Hell Shire Farms and Uphir’s Sanitorium are put on by groups that have been doing this for a few years, so presumably they knwo what they’re doing. As for the Nativity Church haunted house, we attended that church back when we lived in the area – and even presented our own haunted house there one year. It’s nice to see a new generation has come along to revive the tradition (and the money they collect will go to a good cause.
