This year, due to the coronavirus, we are not having a haunted house, but we are working hard on our yard display. We are a 501(c)(3) charity and we’re continuing our mission to our community. Our annual fundraiser wasn’t possible this year, so we’re trying something new and fun!
Come join our singing pumpkins, Greenwood, Fitzroy & Bartlett under the harvest moon in the little pumpkin patch! Wander by the cemetery to see the spooks! Take home your very own pumpkin friend for just $10 – All proceeds benefit our charity Gothic Hills Foundation for producing next year’s event.
Bring a non-perishable food item or pet supply to donate to our charity partner and choose your pumpkin for just $8! We will accept cash or credit cards and contactless payment in person. We require all guests to wear masks, no exceptions.
We have the best pumpkin patch in Sylmar. The Gothic Hills Foundation is a charity that gives back to our community. Our pumpkin patch includes a trio of singing pumpkins and a haunted cemetery scene. It is appropriate for all families.
Pumpkins have been used for jack-o-lanterns at Halloween for centuries. However, originally Jack-O-Lanterns were thought to be carved from turnips! Sometimes apples or other root vegetables. Jack-O-Lanterns date back more than 700 years ago to Ireland. The Irish and Scottish began to make their own versions of Jack’s lanterns by carving scary faces into turnips or potatoes and placing them into windows or near doors to frighten away wandering evil spirits. Immigrants from these countries brought the jack-o’-lantern tradition with them when they came to the United States. They soon found that pumpkins, a fruit native to America, make perfect jack-o’-lanterns.
