Like most of you, the team from Ghost Ship Halloween found out about the tragic events at the Oakland Ghost Ship warehouse on the news on Saturday morning. We are shocked and saddened by the tremendous loss of life.
While we share in the sadness for those effected, our event and the organization Ghost Ship Halloween has no involvement with the warehouse in Oakland.
Despite our best efforts at redirecting inquiries in more accurate directions of relief, we have still been seeing enough misinformation that we felt it necessary to clarify to those in our community who may still be confused. We want to make sure you all knew the truth and can properly educate anyone who is similarly misinformed.
Our event, Ghost Ship Halloween: Atlantis hosted more than 10,000 people in 2016 without any major mishap. Over the past 9 years we have shown steadfast devotion to the highest standards of safety for our patrons, artists, and staff and will continue to do so in the future.
We thank you for your 9 years of support and hope that you will do what you can to help those in need in this difficult time.
