Your hosts mourn the loss of Keith Pearce, who passed away suddenly on June 10. Keith was a good friend and a major influence on the story and style of the Hallowed Haunting Grounds. We will miss him.
In our retirement we continue to enjoy the opportunity to travel to see many of the other haunting efforts in our area. We are posting our tour reports Beyond the Hallowed Haunting Grounds. The first to be public was for 2010 followed by our 2008 tour.
We are pleased to refer you to the fine reviews of Los Angeles area Halloween attractions by Steve Biodrowski at Hollywood Gothique. He has posted detailed reviews and videos of many of our favorite haunts and others in the Los Angeles area. Previously posted is a nice article on haunts past, which includes many of our favorite events and some we are sad to have missed.
For thirty-three years, during the Halloween season, there appeared at a home in Studio City, California a display of mysterious illusions. It was known as the Hallowed Haunting Grounds. Hundreds of very appreciated visitors made seeing the display a part of their annual traditions.
It is very sad that all things must pass, and this Halloween display was no exception. With extreme gratitude to neighbors for their patience, friends for their support, and families for their understanding, the hosts of the show moved on to other endeavors.
