This is an annual event, designed to be fun and educational, encompassing the magic of the season along with a theme. As costumed visitors stop by any of the many educational booths to learn about scary things such as bats, sharks, spiders or state park ghost towns, they are asked a question pertaining to the booth. When they answer correctly, they are awarded a token good for free snacks, face painting, temporary tattoos or the ability to play carnival style games for real prizes.

There is also a spooky walk, a crafts center, photo opportunities, fortune tellers, and more. As the event continues year after year it has become an increasingly popular way for youngsters and adults alike to celebrate Halloween in a safe, fun and entertaining way.

In exchange for free admission, each visitor is asked to donate a can or box of non-perishable food which the park later donates to a worthy charity. To date, Doheny State Beach has donated more than three tons of food to people in need.
