La Cañada Elementary School’s Halloween Haunt is a favorite annual fundraiser. The costume competition for pre-school-6th grade is always popular. Emceeing for the 23rd year was state Sen. Anthony Portantino. He entertained the audience with Halloween jokes and interviewed all the contestants. Many fun activities included inflatables, beastly battle zone, hair scare, carnival games, smashin’ pumpkins and many more. Kids could purchase silly string and confetti eggs. A silent auction and food and treats were available. Co-chairs were Keisha Wilcox and Sheila Dunbar.
