VIDEO: Boney Island's Popular Halloween Haunt Returns

People come to Sherman Oaks from all over Los Angeles to check out this popular front-yard Halloween attraction, which returns after a three-year hiatus.

Boney Island Yard Haunt, a free, front-yard Halloween display at 4602 Morse Ave., returned this year with an all-new water show.

The popular attraction drew nearly 30,000 spectators each year who watched dancing and singing skeletons for 10 years before it ended in 2007. But creator Rick Polizzi, an animation producer for Fox's "The Simpsons," decided this Halloween to bring the show back after his co-creator, Rex Danyluk, showed him his new fluorescent water show set to music.

The completely redesigned Boney Island Yard Haunt (all props from the previous incarnations of the show were sold on eBay) incorporates the water show, talking and moving skeletons, music, jack-o-lanterns, talking spiders and more.

A Boney Island Boo-tique offers t-shirts, scarves and other items to benefit Food on Foot, a nonprofit that provides food, clothing, jobs and assistance to the poor and homeless in Los Angeles.

The don't-miss display ends Oct. 31.

This has got to be the most outstanding front-lawn Halloween attraction in LA County. Can you name another good one?
