BOONION STATION

BOONION STATION

Saturday, October 26, and Sunday, October 27, 2019 from noon-6 p.m. - South Patio

Union Station will become a ghoulishly gleeful garden of goblins at the 2nd annual Boo-nion Station, a free two-day, family-friendly Halloween hoopla in downtown L.A.

The free, fiendishly fun event, will transform the station’s South Patio into a mystical Halloween Village and feature delightfully devilish activities for kids. The Hallowhuts will host performances, Halloween crafts, face painting, tarantula tattoos and puppet shows to keep even little monsters entertained.

At 1 p.m., 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. each day the village will become a sorcerer’s stroll around the Treats-on-Track Trail, which promises to deliver a spellbinding sugar high.

Guests can “boo-gie” down with a spooky spin on some Halloween favorites at our very own Monster Mash Dance Party held every hour on the half hour or don their most haunting or hilarious costumes for the Creepy & Clever Costume Contest with prizes at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.
