Suffice to say, Los Angeles is a huge city with a massive population. Throughout the year, these facts can cause their share of headaches – especially in regards to traffic! However, during holidays, living in or around a major city like this pays off in spades. Here are just a few of the Halloween events in Los Angeles planned for this weekend that may just be worth checking out.

  • First and foremost is the Halloween Carnival in West Hollywood. It’s the largest street fair in the world and boasts an annual attendance of 500,000 people. It goes from 5-11 p.m. on Friday, October 31st and it’s free to get in. Once inside, carnival goers will be treated to spectacular music acts, phenomenal costumes and a wide variety of culinary treats that local Los Angeles has to offer.
  • “Fright Fest” at Six Flags Magic Mountain will always please the thrill seekers. Not only do they have some of the scariest rides, (look for some to have the lights off to make them extra scary), but the park will be transformed into a haunted park with zombies, scary clowns, mazes and more. There are treats for the kids too with crafts and activities during the daylight hours. October 24-26, 31 and Nov. 1st.
  • How does one follow up partying Halloween night with 500,000 other people? Easy! Saturday, November 1st will see the 15th Annual Dio De Los Muertes Festival at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. From 12 p.m. to midnight, attendees will be treated to a wide range of festivities including Aztec ritual dancers in their full panoply, 3 stages of live music and dance performances, arts, crafts, vendors and, of course, food!
  • For those looking to get into something a little more low-key, why not take in a movie? From October 24th to November 2nd, the El Capitan theater will be screening Tim Burton’s classic The Nightmare Before Christmas in glorious 4D! On certain dates, there will even be a dessert party after the screening which includes food, activities and photos.

Wherever you go, whatever you do, remember to stay safe. There are going to be a lot of kids out on the streets tonight, so take extra care if you’re going to be driving around. From all of us at Adventure Bail Bonds, have a safe and happy Halloween!
