Boney Island

For 19 years, the ultimate spooky event happened each Halloween season at the skeleton-themed Boney Island. Designed like a mini amusement park, it was the creation of my friend Rick Polizzi, who prepared months in advance to set it up at his home in Sherman Oaks, CA. The incredible exhibition was a labor of love, and offered to the public free of charge. The attraction became so popular that the city ultimately demanded that Rick pay a huge sum of money for police security and crowd control. Sadly, the costs were two great and Boney Island was forced to shut down in 2017.

Update: A bigger, better Boney Island is back in 2018! Now held at Griffith Park's Travel Town. For more information, visit the Boney Island website.
