Join Pierce College in welcoming back Spookley the Square Pumpkin and his hay-stuffed handler Jack the Scarecrow in the pair's live stage show at the college's Woodland Hills campus, newly gussied up in its autumnal finest for the annual Halloween Harvest Festival.

Scaredy-cats and fear junkies alike should be advised that, after dark, the festival becomes the FrightFair Scream Park, a souped-up and altogether more terrifying version of itself.

It was billed as the San Fernando Valley Experiment, but Steve Young saw it for what it really was: an act of desperation. Twenty-five years ago this week, in an effort to attract fans and perhaps entice a potential buyer, Young and the Los Angeles Express of the United States Football League vacated their cavernous Coliseum home to play their final home game of the 1985 season at Pierce College in Woodland Hills. Another future Super Bowl most valuable player, Doug Williams, was quarterback of the opposition, the Arizona Outlaws, in what turned out to be the Express' final home game — period.
