Free, Two-Day Event to Feature a Treats-on-Track Trail, Slime Sessions, a Spooktacular Spider Forest and Monster Mash Dance Parties

The iconic Union Station South Patio will once again become a ghoulishly gleeful garden of goblins at the 3rd annual Boonion Station, a free, two-day, family-friendly Halloween hoopla in downtown LA.

The fiendishly fun event will be held on Saturday, Oct. 30, and Sunday, Oct. 31, from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. with two spirited sessions each day from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. and 2 p.m. – 5 p.m. Free advance general admission tickets are required and available at Eventbrite. Walk-ins will be welcomed on a first-come, first-served basis.

Boonion Station will transform the downtown destination into a Halloween village featuring delightfully devilish activities for families including a fun and fuzzy spider forestHalloween craftstarantula tattoos and mad scientist slime sessions to keep little monsters entertained. 

Throughout the day the village will become a sorcerer’s stroll around the treats-on-track trail, which promises to deliver a spellbinding sugar high. Guests can “boo-gie” down with a spooky spin on some Halloween favorites at monster mash dance parties or don haunting or hilarious costumes for the creepy & clever costume contest with prizes at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. each day. 

A pumpkin patch picnic will feature food trucks dishing up some frighteningly fabulous fare throughout the day.

Additional activities include a cobweb craft corner, a Day of the Dead destination, and a host of howling stilt walkers and Halloween characters.

For the health and safety of our guests, COVID-19 protocols will be followed. Capacity will be limited, social distancing will be encouraged, and masks will be required as mandated by County of Los Angeles Public Health guidelines.
