Ghouls for School

Hundreds of canyon residents devoured the chance to eat, drink and be scary at this year’s annual Topanga Halloween Carnival. Attendees were treated to a spooktacular set from rockers Kummerspeck, an annual event that raises funds for Topanga Elementary School. After two years of Covid lockdowns and restrictions, the carnival was back to its bewitching best with locals ready to have a ghoulishly good time.
Zoia Comarova, pictured here with her two-year-old son Misha Mangul, enjoyed the event. “It was so fun to play at the stalls that were created by the students and their families. We love living in such a creative and vibrant community, and can’t stop counting our blessings.”
Each class at the school designed, built, and managed their own carnival stall, which included a Transylvania Tic-Tac-Toe game, a photo booth for frightfully fun family photos, and a “Floor Is Lava” obstacle course. Topanga Enrichment Programs, the school’s booster club that raises funds for resources LAUSD doesn’t pay for, organized the party, which was hosted at the Topanga Community Center. The proceeds will go towards enrichment education at the school, including class aides and specialist science, art, and physical education teachers.
The event would not have been possible without the support of its generous local sponsors: The Wright Way Team with COMPASS; The Spirited Man; Elise M Lefranc at Life Coaching for Moms; Chryssa Lightheart with Pritchett Rapf Realtors in Topanga; and the Reggae on the Mountain Music Festival.
