 The name has changed, but the activities will remain the same Oct. 23 and 24 when Huntington Beach State Park and Atalaya open their doors for the annual haunted houses.

Cartoons will be shown during festival hours, 6 to 9 p.m. This year’s event features an expanded crafts area, good for people of all ages, a photo booth, “head-in-the-hole” photo opportunities and face painting for the younger set.

There will, as always, be ghost stories by the fire, weather permitting, scheduled each half hour.

In addition to the s’mores and popcorn, mainstays of past events, guests this year may purchase food from vendors.

While park and castle entry fees have been waived, there is an admission charge – $10 for adults, $7 for those 6 to 15. Those 5 and younger are admitted free.
