Best Halloween Neighborhoods in Glendale
Trick Or Treating will be very different in Glendale in 2020. Official events in the Americana at Brand and Montrose Shopping Village have been cancelled and it is unclear if private homeowners will participate in the Trick or Treat tradition.
The city of Glendale is holding a Trick or Treat Drive Boo at Verdugo Park.
Here are some of the the best neighborhoods for great Halloween fun. Trick or Treating may not be possible or safe, but you can bet the residents are going all out with their Halloween decor!!
This idyllic neighborhood is located where Glendale, La Canada and La Crescenta come together and it has long been the favorite place to trick or treat in Glendale. These homes are just below Montrose Shopping Village and many start out at the Spooktacular in the Village and continue into Sparr Heights. Long regular streets are well lit and sidewalks are everywhere. This neighborhood is popular for entertainment industry insiders and the amazing decorations really show this off! I have seen ginormous spides, spooky, motion activated lighting and full on haunted mazes. Some homes have developed their over the top decor over a period of years and this is a very popular spot for little kids.
Crescent and Waltonia, Montrose
This is a tiny little area of Montrose is located just above the 210 freeway. This is the ideal place to Trick or Treat in Glendale if your kids are overwhelmed by crowds of people. About a third of the homes are decorated and some even feature mini haunted houses. Lots of smaller kids and parents love this area because it is intimate and more manageable.
The center of this amazing neighborhood is at Kenneth Road and Highland Ave. Most know this area as Northwest Glendale and it is the other major place to trick or treat in Glendale. This part of Kenneth Rd. features graceful and impressive homes with deep front yards decorated to the ninth degree. We know of a few Hollywood Types in this area as well- they might use some movie magic to really trick out the Holloween Experience. In this area, I once saw a full sized Ghost Pirate Ship. In recent years the crowds have become a tad unruly, so be aware that police presence is very visible. We love cute trick or treaters, but we do not tolerate hooligans. You’ve been warned.,
For a more sedate trick or treat experience, look to La Canada’s Indianola Rd. Located in the “flats” of La Canada, this street is the place for awesome Halloween decor. As with most of La Canada, however, streetlights and sidewalks are in short supply. As a result, this is much more of a Locals Only type of street and neighbors greet each other and admire the kid’s costumes.
Lyans and Orchard Lane, La Canada Flintridge
South of Palm Crest Elementary School, the streets are taken over by trick or treaters every year. Nearly every house in this neighborhood passes out candy, so your little ghouls plastic pumpkins will fill up quickly. Neighbors compete to see who has the most elaborate displays, some are cute and toddler friendly, and other displays lean more towards macabre, and may even spook the older kids.
