Hay bales disrupt the musty fog that clings to the ground. Upon them, an army of Jack o’lanterns flicker, casting a warm-yet-eerie glow. A closer look reveals carvings of ghosts, vampires, witches, and almost every nostalgic Halloween tableau imaginable. This is the centerpiece that is Wicked Pumpkin Hollow. However, take a closer look and discover that this hollow has more to offer than its creator’s wickedly fun pumpkin carvings. Masked trick-or-treaters, bats, skeletons, and a menacing seven-foot-tall pumpkin figure, to name a few, are set against a backdrop of festive corn stalks, towering trees, spooky sounds, and haunting lighting that will transport you to the quiet neighborhood in Sherman Oaks, where this display is located each year, and to Halloween of yesteryear.
