Neighborhood Fun on L. Ron Hubbard Way for the Annual Halloween Festival

Church of Scientology Los Angeles holds a trick-or-treat extravaganza for East Hollywood families

More than 3,000 filled L. Ron Hubbard Way in East Hollywood this week at a Halloween festival hosted by the Church of Scientology Los Angeles. As with all the street fairs the Church organizes, it was designed for maximum fun and admission was free.

The street was filled with minions, ghouls and witches, and superheroes of all ages and sizes. Activities included pumpkin carving, face-painting and donut-eating contests. The Ferris wheel and bouncy house were particularly popular. And kids screwed up their nerve to pet a host of challenging creatures at the “creepy crawly critters” petting zoo. 

One of the most popular features of the festival was a children’s concert and sing-along of songs performed by some of the children’s favorite cartoon characters.

Neighbors, community groups, Church volunteers and staff took turns manning trick-or-treat stations and contributed candy and other treats for the kids.

The annual Halloween fun day was just one of a series of events planned to make the holiday season special for East Hollywood kids and their families. Next was a celebration of Dia de los Muertos celebration. The Holiday Lighting Festival is scheduled for November 19 to be followed by winter fun for the kids throughout the season.
