I noticed that there was some kind of festival set-up over at Fashion Square. What is going on over there? Also, why has the Patch not reported anything on this yet? I have been waiting all week..... confused.

Wow, was this difficult to find. It's a good thing they have all kinds of carnival rides over there or nobody would know about this event. Saturday, Oct 29 12:00p to 10:00p Halloween Stuntacular. http://events.la.com/sherman-oaks-ca/events/show/216985324-halloween-stuntacular
