Halloween Events to Support Charity, Safe Trick-or-Treat

Haunted Graveyard creator Bob Johnston and friends will once again convert Lassen Way in Morgan Hill into a frightful display of high-tech spookery, 6:30-10 p.m., on Halloween this coming Friday.

"Terror on Lassen Way" will feature a haunted graveyard filled with special effects, including a thunder and lightning storm, creaking gates, wisecracking skulls, the "breathing ground," zombies trying to escape their graves, a clawing hand, tombstones that shift and shake and many more disturbing surprises inside. Each year for about 20 years, Johnston has set up a donation booth to raise money for a cause. This year's cause is the Parkinson's Disease Foundation. Johnston said the amount raised each year varies but he's raised more than $5,000 over the years.

To get to "Terror" from Monterey Road, travel west on Watsonville Road. Turn left onto Venetian Way and stay right. The entrance to "Terror" will be on the left.

A second spooky contender can be seen in a "Haunted Garage" at 565 Caprice Court, 6:30-9 p.m., Thursday and from 5:30-10 p.m., Friday. This event drew 191 trick-or-treating revelers last year to see the black-lit, strobing scary skeletons and more. Homeowner Jim Burnham will be collecting canned food for the Second Harvest Food Bank. Visit for more information on this haunted house.

And, of course, there's the downtown's 12th annual Safe Trick-or-Treat, 5-7:30 p.m, on Monterey Road between East Dunne and Main avenues.

Last year, 70 downtown businesses gave out candy to about 3,000 children during the event, sponsored by the Morgan Hill Downtown Association.
