Halloween is a favorite holiday for all of the greater Hancock Park area – Brookside, Windsor Village, Larchmont Village, Windsor Square, Hancock Park and beyond!  Our neighborhood lends itself to celebrating this fun, scary, generous holiday the way it’s meant to be celebrated…with a few haunted mansions; lots of scary goblins and beautiful fairy princess trick-or-treaters; some giant fall leaves littering the sidewalks and a stream of reminders of how lucky we are to live in one of the best communities in Los Angeles.

As with all things that are good, lots of people want to share in the fun.  Windsor Square has become one of the most popular neighborhoods in the city for trick-or-treaters.  According to the candy-count estimates, any given house on Norton or Van Ness can have as many as 1200 trick-or-treaters on Halloween.

Olympic Division LAPD Senior Lead Officer Joseph Pelayo strongly recommends that children not trick or treat alone or during times of darkness. And of course, adult supervision is a must.
