Coast Guard Haunted House in Eureka falls to budget constraints

Coast Guard District 11 NewsMCKINLEYVILLE, Calif. — There won’t be a spooky event at the Coast Guard Haunted House for this year’s Halloween festivities in Eureka.

Due to budgetary constraints, Humboldt Bay-based Coast Guard organizers are unable to host the popular community event this year or in the foreseeable future. In years past, Coast Guard crews transformed the Coast Guard Barn into a house of ghosts and goblins and other spooky creatures making this one of the more popular Halloween events on the Redwood Coast.

The Coast Guard thanks the communities on the Redwood Coast for their support and wishes everyone to have a safe and Happy Halloween.

    I am a little confused seems like at $5 a head and the line never ends,that it would be a great money maker for the coast guard, they already have all the props and it would be pure funds.

    Prices have fluctuated over the years, but last year there was no admission charged – and the line was excessively long late into the night, with people being turned away by 10pm.

    This is a true loss for the community, especially for my family. We are devastated at the loss of this holiday tradition.

    and, yes, I too am confused by the wording of “budgetary constraints” and “foreseeable future”.
