West Hollywood Halloween Carnaval
Halloween is only a week away, and if you're looking for something to do on the spookiest night of the year, there are plenty of events, haunted houses and parties to attend. But my favorite Halloween event is still the West Hollywood Carnaval, where you'll see some of the most amazingly creative and intricate costumes in the world.
Located on Santa Monica Boulevard from 6 pm to 11 pm on October 31, the West Hollywood costume extravaganza will attract hundreds of thousands of people. If you want to show off the costume you've been working on since last year, or simply want to be blown away by others' superb costumes, West Hollywood is the place to be on Halloween night. There will be live music on several stages, tons of yummy food to eat and, of course, lots of people watching to do.
Because of the warm weather in Los Angeles this time of year, you should expect to see many racy and barely-there costumes that might not be appropriate for young kids. But there are plenty of other events in West Hollywood for the little ones including the Halloween Youth Carnival on Saturday, October 25 and the Annual Doggy Costume Contest on Sunday, October 26. For more information on all of the events that make up Carnaval week, check out the West Hollywood website. You'll also find information on parking and street closures related to the events.
