Have you always wanted to see what it’s like in jail without actually getting arrested? How about a haunted one at that? This year you have two opportunities! The Lakewood Sheriff’s Station becomes ‘The Haunted Jail’ on Friday, October 25, from 4:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. Along with a scary jail for visitors 12 and older, there is also a less scary version for younger children. There will be public displays from various Sheriff’s Department units as well as kids games and even a bounce house.
Lakewood Station is located at 5130 Clark Avenue. The best place to park is on the south end of Civic Center Drive on or near the vacant lot and Angelo M. Iacoboni Library. More parking becomes available after library and city hall business hours.
Cerritos Sheriff Station will also be hosting it’s own Haunted Jail on Saturday, October 26 from 12 to 8 pm. There will be a kid-friendly Halloween-themed fair with jumpers, face painting, crafts, and candy. A scary tour of the haunted jail with special effects will be available for the older crowd.
Cerritos Station is located at 18135 Bloomfield Avenue right next to the library.
