Pumpkin Carving Contest

Leasing Coordinator Solita Heng takes a break to clown around with our office's Jack O' Lantern!


Who says work can’t be fun? Here at Ernst & Haas, we’re all about getting into the Halloween spirit. Leasing Coordinator Solita Heng and Application Processor Jill Phung had a blast carving out and decorating our office’s pumpkin, which also joined us for our Halloween potluck, complete with a “finger-topped cake” and “roaches nest pie”.

But we’d love to see YOUR carving skills and reward you for them! Take a photo of your very own Jack O’ Lantern and enter it into our Pumpkin Carving Contest. The winning photo will be published on our Blog and the winner will receive two FREE movie tickets!

Please submit all photos to marketing@ernstandhaas.com and write Pumpkin Carving Contest in the subject line. All entries must be received by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, November 2. Please DO NOT submit any obscene or indecent photos.

Have a Happy Halloween and remember to be safe!



What better way to celebrate the Halloween weekend then by walking around Long Beach like a zombie?

Long Beach’s Annual 4th Street Zombie Walk, put on by www.mondocelluloid.com, takes place on 4th Street between Cherry and Junipero, and begins at 5 p.m.  tomorrow night. There will be zombie-themed drink specials offered at Portfolio Coffee House, Art Du Vin Win Bar, and 4th Street Vine; a FREE kiddie zombie makeup clinic at Lil’ Devils Boutique; professional zombie makeup provided by Elan Collection and Salon Pop & Barber Shop; a flash mob by WE Move; and Lola’s Mexican Cuisine will be open until midnight.

The walk starts at Portfolio Coffee House at 8:30 p.m. and is followed by a showing of “Shaun of the Dead” (check out the trailer here) at the Art Theatre at 9:30 p.m. So practice your moan and groan, get those zombie arms up and out, and haunt the streets of Long Beach. After all, Michael Jackson wasn’t the only one that liked to walk around like a zombie.
