This year we celebrated Halloween with a visit to the Haunted Castle at Huntington Beach State Park. Historic Attalaya was the perfect setting for a haunted house. The Park rangers and Park Friends put months of work into making the decorations for the interior and exterior of the building. On the Big Scare side of the tour, eerie lighting and creepy characters that moved around you recreated almost every scary movie set you've ever watched.
The Little Scare side was set up more like a series of scenes from the 'Pirates of the Caribbean'; Nothing jumped out at you, and nothing was super frightening. Even the Littlest ones had fun going through that side.
