Turkey Trot Los Angeles

November 19, 2015 — Leave a comment

Turkey Trot Los Angeles returns to Downtown Los Angeles on Thanksgiving morning, inviting runners ages two and up to participate in friendly competition and family fun for Turkey Day.

Featuring 5K and 10K courses that start and finish in front of the City Hall, thousands of runners will be dressed in costumes of turkeys, pilgrims, and pies will follow a scenic course through Bunker Hill and Spring Street passing by such sites as the new Broad Museum, Grand Park, Walt Disney Concert Hall, and MOCA.

Families can bring little ones for the “Widdle Wobble” (ages 2-12), which is a fun run around Grand Park and features a fantastic kid zone. Participants can also enjoy memorable photo opportunities with the 20 ft. tall turkey in front of the City Hall finish line.

This event not only brings the fun before the feast, but also offers a chance to give back to those in need. Participants are encouraged to donate time or money to The Midnight Mission, the official non-profit partner of Turkey Trot Los Angeles. Funds raised will help to remove obstacles to self-sufficiency and provide the accountability and structure that people who are experiencing homelessness need to rejoin their communities.

The Los Angeles Haunted Hayride has become an Iconic Hollywood tradition that remains unparalleled and unmatched. Armies of demonic forces and dark presences litter the grounds and are frantic to strike at their favorite “hayriders.” This year’s sets are truly spectacular as the creative team takes on new special effects challenges not yet done in the live haunted attraction realm that will make the most unique haunted attraction in LA a show stopping vision of Haunt, Creep, and Bone Chill.

1

New this year is the House of Shadows. Enter the home that for centuries has been consuming its occupants with madness, resulting in heinous and unspeakable atrocities committed within it’s walls, all in the name of a vile entity known only as the Boogeyman! Waking the evil from its slumber through accidental experiments with Ouija Boards, you will find yourself plunged into darkness, room after room, forced into a necrotic void where there is NO EXIT–except to KEEP GOING!

3

Also new is Trick or Treat. Nothing will ever beat those vintage memories of crisp Halloween nights, running amuck dressed in rubber masks and plastic costumes down your neighborhood street, collecting ALL THAT CANDY! Re-live the adventure in our one of a kind, high startle and hilariously entertaining TRICK OR TREAT experience! Door after door, you’ll never know if you’re going to receive a Trick, a Treat, or both!
